US lawmakers seek tech companies' input on net neutrality

The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee is seeking input from companies such as Alphabet Inc., Amazon.com Inc., Facebook Inc. and Comcast Corp. regarding proposed rules on consumer internet access, Reuters reported.

The committee wants the companies to consider what needs to included and scrapped from the laws, according to an email from Robin Colwell, a lawyer for the committee.

The request comes a week after the House panel invited the CEOs of tech and telecom companies to testify on net neutrality rules at a Sept. 7 hearing.

In May, the FCC voted in favor of a plan to overturn the commission's 2015 Open Internet Order, which reclassified internet service providers as public utilities. Many ISPs want Congress to write permanent rules.

The U.S. Supreme Court, on the other hand, had granted a request from some industry groups to postpone the legal battle on the issue.
