House Republicans will likely put the brakes on efforts by the Federal Communications Commission to re-regulate Internet lines. Phone and cable companies are fighting the plan, and Republicans have already warned the FCC to drop the plan.

Joe Barton (R., Texas) and Rep. Ed Markey (D., Mass.), jointly warned that they plan to put “Internet privacy policies in the crosshairs” with hearings and legislation.
