National Association of REALTORS® President Elizabeth Mendenhall praised a bill by Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman Tuesday that’s designed to prevent Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from blocking or controlling speed of legal Internet content or services.

“Nearly all of America’s 1.3 million REALTORS® depend on open access to affordable, high-quality Internet service to adequately serve clients, market properties and conduct business,” said Mendenhall. “Rep. Mike Coffman’s 21st Century Internet Act is a much-needed response to the FCC’s decision to repeal net neutrality regulations and preserve equal, unencumbered Internet access for small businesses and consumers across the country.

“NAR applauds the Congressman for his work on this legislation and pledges to continue working with Congress and the FCC to protect our members’ ability to freely share lawful content on the Internet.”
