Last week, the Federal Communications Commission voted to move forward on a new net neutrality proposal. It is now seeking feedback from the public during a comment period. After that, the FCC will write a final set of rules and vote on them. POPVOX users can write to the FCC here: http://www.popvox.com/blog/2014/net-neutrality/

Congress came back to DC from Easter break on Monday! The House returns for an early appropriations season -- the earliest since at least 1974. Meanwhile, the Senate will consider raising the minimum wage. #Congress   #minimumwage   #appropriations2014

Missed a bill last week? Check out the Roundup on POPVOX. Spoiler alert: The top bill on POPVOX was the House-passed Republican "Path to Prosperity" budget proposal, which would cut the federal budget by $5 trillion over the next ten years. See the rest of the list:

With Flag Day just a few days ago, the most popular issue on POPVOX this week was related to the #Americanflag  . HJRes 47 proposes an amendment to the US #Constitution   giving Congress power to prohibit the physical desecration of the US flag. (Although it does not specifically ban the desecration of the US flag, it would give Congress explicit power to do so.) Support for the amendment was mixed -- with 55% of POPVOX users supporting the amendment.

Keeping track of Congress? 
The most popular bill on POPVOX this week was the Unmuzzle the Drug Czar Act (HR 4046), which would remove restrictions that require the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), colloquially known as the “Drug Czar,” to oppose changing the legal status of marijuana and prevent it from even studying whether there could be any medical benefits, according to the bill's sponsor, Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09). Weigh in at https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/hr4046
