White House threatens veto of net neutrality bill

The White House threatened on Tuesday to veto legislation that would overturn FCC net neutrality rules, aimed to create a more "open" Internet.

"The administration strongly opposes Senate passage of S.J. Res. 6, which would undermine a fundamental part of the nation's Open Internet and innovation strategy - an enforceable, effective but flexible policy for keeping the Internet free and open," the White House said in a statement.

"Today more than ever, the open Internet is essential to job creation, economic growth, and global competitiveness."
