With the FCC’s upcoming vote on net neutrality scheduled for next Thursday, Senator John Thune, a major voice of opposition to the proposal, is set to speak at National Journal’s “Conversation with the Chair” series. Only hours before the vote itself, the discussion will take place at the Newseum’s Knight Conference Center from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM.
Thune will join Washington editor-at-large of National Journal and The Atlantic, Steve Clemons to discuss “the implications of the FCC action, his alternative legislation on the matter and what a ruling could mean for the future of internet policy.”
The senator will also answer questions regarding the gas tax and Highway Trust Fund, as well as some of his policy plans in his new role as chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.
