Press Release

Today, Representative John Moolenaar (R-Midland) made a statement on the Federal Communications Commission’s new rules for regulating the Internet.

“The Internet regulations announced by the FCC today are wholly unwarranted. The Internet has flourished and become a great success because it is not overly regulated by the government. The proposed FCC rules will have a chilling effect on American innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit that makes our nation great. To keep that success going, the government should end these heavy-handed regulations,” said Moolenaar.

Moolenaar is the U.S. Representative for Michigan’s Fourth Congressional District. His official House website is online at Moolenaar.House.Gov, and on Facebook at
