    More than six dozen House Democrats have voiced "serious concerns" with a Federal Communications Commission initiative to regulate the Internet and impose "net neutrality" rules by re-classifying the service under a seven-decade-old statute.

    In a letter sent Monday to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, 74 members of Congress expressed skepticism about the motives behind the re-classification proposal, BigGovernment.com contributor "Capitol Confidential" reports.

    "We remain suspicious of conclusions based on slogans rather than substance and of policies that restrict and inhibit the very innovation and growth that we all seek to achieve," the Democratic House members said in the letter.

    Net neutrality is a cornerstone of the National Broadband Plan Genachowski submitted to Congress in mid-March. Among other reforms, it called for eventual elimination of terrestrial television broadcasting, which would allow for the re-allocation of the spectrum to wireless broadband concerns.
