He was recently named to head the congressional panel that would deal with such an issue.

It urges the FCC to cancel the December 14 vote that would allow internet service providers (ISPs) to block content, sites or apps if they disagreed with them or if they posed a competitive threat, and to establish different classes and prices of service for different types of content. Now, all websites are treated equally - whether owned by large companies or small start-up, supporters say.

The FCC proposal does require providers to disclose blocking or slowing down of access to content to their customers.
