WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on Federal Communications Commission Chairman (FCC) Ajit Pai’s announcement to roll back net neutrality regulations:

“The internet is evidence of the unparalleled heights that a true free market can reach. But those heights have been threatened by federal regulations that set a dangerous precedent by focusing on controlling the internet rather than protecting consumers. Chairman Pai’s announcement that the FCC will roll back these regulations is welcome news. Congress is committed to working with the Trump administration to enact policies that protect consumers and ensure Americans have access to a free and open internet.”
