WASHINGTON - The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing to review the impact of the Comcast-Time Warner Cable Merger. 

A press release says the hearing comes weeks after Comcast announced that it was purchasing Time Warner Cable. 

“Millions of Americans rely on cable connectivity to receive the programs they love and to access the Internet at the fast speed needed as we conduct more of our lives online,” Leahy said. “The merger of Comcast and Time Warner Cable touches on important policy questions about how Americans access these valuable services.  It also presents a critical moment to discuss net neutrality principles that have allowed the Internet to remain an open marketplace for ideas.” 

The meeting will be held on March 26 in Room 226 of the Diksen Senate Office Building. Member statements, witness testimony, and a live webcast will be available online on March 26.
