Net Neutrality Vote Update:

Signers of Mark Udall’s petition received an email about ten minutes ago informing them that the Senate upheld the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rule to prevent Internet service providers throttling down certain types of internet activity.  The FCC rules were upheld by voting down S.J.
