"The House Republicans don't have to choose the same path that the vast majority of Senate Republicans in the Senate chose", Schumer said during the news conference.

Instead of blocking the FCC's rule repeal, it suggested that policymakers work toward "bipartisan compromise legislation that will stand the test of time".
