Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and five public interest groups continue to voice their opposition of the attempts to repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s broadband privacy rules, Broadcasting & Cable reports.

Markey and the groups are rallying against Republican lawmakers’ push to overturn the FCC rules using the Congressional Review Act.
