Thanks to Democrats, Wednesday the Senate voted to restore the Net neutrality policies that were previously repealed by the FCC. Only three Republicans, Susan Collins (R-Maine), John Kennedy (R-LA) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) broke rank in the Senate’s 52-47 vote.

Senate Democrats had pushed for a vote to enact the Congressional Review Act, or CRA, to halt the Federal Communications Commission’s rollback of Obama-era rules governing the open internet. Well, they got the vote Wednesday, and it went their way.
