Americans Should Not Face Internet Toll Road, Says Pelosi



October 17, 2007 By

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement yesterday on the House voting 405 to 2 to approve a four-year extension of the Internet tax moratorium.

"I am pleased that the House passed legislation to extend the ban on taxes on Internet access. By voting to continue the tax moratorium, the House will help promote innovation, affordable Internet access, and broadband services for American consumers and businesses.

"It is critical that the Senate now act on this bipartisan legislation ahead of the Internet access tax moratorium's expiration on November 1. Americans must not face a toll road when they get on the information superhighway."
