Rep. Issa Introduces Bill Via Reddit

So now we need social media marketing for lawmaking? In an obvious appeal to the Internet community, Rep. Darrell Issa introduced The Internet Moratorium Act (IAMA), via Reddit. Rep. Darrell Issa proposed the new bill Tuesday in an effort to prevent lawmakers from enacting any new Internet regulations over the next two years. Passing the bill— which at this point is only a “discussion draft—would be an unlikely move for Congress. Opponents argue banning all new Internet regulations might not actually be beneficial for net neutrality opponents like Issa and other Republicans. Issa will hold an “ask me anything” session on Reddit Wednesday to explain the bill further.
