Net neutrality rules in the U.S. are set to expire in June, the Federal Communications Commission announced Thursday.

In December, the FCC repealed the Obama-era net neutrality rules, allowing internet providers to block or slow websites as long as they disclose the practice.

The FCC said the new rules will take effect on June 11.

The U.S. Senate is set to vote as early as next week on whether to reject the FCC repeal of the net neutrality rules.

Acting New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood released the following statement:

“A free and open internet is critical to New York, and to our democracy. The repeal of net neutrality would allow internet service providers to put their profits before the consumers they serve and control what we see, do, and say online. This office has proudly led the suit to block this illegal rollback of net neutrality – and we certainly won’t stop now. We look forward to making our case in court.”

Earlier this year, New York and 22 other states, filed suit to block the rollback of net neutrality.
