Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) accused Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski of catering his net neutrality proposal to industry in a lengthy floor speech on Saturday.
Franken decried the process Genachowski used to win support for his proposal.
He said he is “concerned when I hear that the chairman of the FCC is calling the CEOs of companies they are supposed to be regulating, seeking their public endorsement of his net neutrality proposal,” he said.
Franken urged Genachowski to edit the proposal to make it stronger before the agency votes on it on Tuesday.
“I sincerely hope that the FCC will make significant improvements before then,” he said.
