On behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) as an amicus curiae, LNG&S filed a brief with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the petitioners challenge to the FCC’s “Open Internet” rules. CEI showed that Congress did not empower the FCC to adopt rules to implement Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which the FCC relied upon for its authority to promulgate its Open Internet rules. CEI demonstrated that Congress has consistently withheld Internet rulemaking authority from the FCC.
