The full proposal hasn't been released yet, but according to their press release (warning, Microsoft Word document) carriers would not be allowed to "prevent users from sending or receiving the lawful content", "running lawful applications", or "connecting and using...lawful devices that do not harm the network". There will be a three-month period for comments, beginning January 14, after which the FCC will issue its final guidelines."
