California's tough net neutrality bill prompts USA lawsuit

California's 'gold standard' net neutrality becomes law

California joins OR and Washington as states that have successfully passed a net neutrality bill.

Jerry Brown vetoed a bill on Sunday that would have mandated California public universities to provide abortion pills, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

"I look forward to working with my colleagues and the Department of Justice to ensure the internet remains 'unfettered by federal or state regulation, ' as federal law requires, and the domain of engineers, entrepreneurs, and technologists, not lawyers and bureaucrats."

The United States Telecom Association said in a statement it supports strong net neutrality protections but thinks the matter should be left to the federal government.

Elon Musk to give up role of Tesla chairman
Tesla stock ( NASDAQ:TSLA ) is exhibiting a strong recovery on Monday, trading up 15.40% at $305.54 per share during the opening bell.

On Sunday California governor Jerry Brown signed a law that re-established net neutrality in his state, the country's largest and wealthiest.

Net neutrality has become a rallying cry for liberal activists and younger Americans, who complain of corporate priorities they say are at odds with what they want to see in internet governance.

The Federal Communications Commission past year repealed rules that prevented internet companies from exercising more control over what people watch and see on the internet. California is one of the first states to truly provoke the FCC. "Once again the California legislature has enacted an extreme and illegal state law attempting to frustrate federal policy".

California's net neutrality law may have been inspired by the problems they encountered during their horrific wildfires this summer.

Chuuk residents praised for 'awesome' response to plane crash
A South Pacific airline announced Monday that a passenger died when a plane crashed into a Pacific lagoon in Micronesia last week. The airline and the US Navy both said the plane landed in the lagoon short of the runway. "I thought we landed hard", he said.

State Sen. Scott Wiener, a Democrat who authored the legislation, said that this was "a historic day in California". Like the 2015 Open Internet Order that was repealed in 2017, the bill also bans ISPs from charging websites to load for the ISPs subscribers or using the point where data enters the ISPs network to evade net neutrality.

USTelecom, a telecommunications trade group, said California writing its own rules will create problems.

Oregon, Washington and Vermont have approved legislation related to net neutrality, but California's measure is seen as the most comprehensive attempt to codify the principle in a way that might survive a likely court challenge.

"We've been down this road before: when Trump and Sessions sued California and claimed we lacked the power to protect immigrants". He complained that the California regulation would hurt consumers, arguing for instance, that it disallows many free-data plans allowing consumers to stream content exempt from data limits. The new rules took effect in June but providers have made no changes in access.
