US Reps. Henry Waxman and Anna Eshoo (both D-CA) submitted legislation today to reinstate the net neutrality rules recently struck down by a court decision.

Rules preventing Internet service providers from blocking or discriminating against content were vacated last month because the Federal Communications Commission did not properly justify its authority to implement them. The FCC could implement the rules from its Open Internet Order again by reclassifying Internet providers as common carriers, but in the meantime, the regulations are not in place.

The Open Internet Preservation Act proposed by Waxman and Eshoo, both members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, would put those rules back in effect "until the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) takes new final action in the Open Internet proceeding," a bill description says.
