California's state Assembly is attempting to turn back time on net neutrality by voting yesterday to approve a controversial bill that brings the state closer to enacting the Obama-era Federal net neutrality laws that were gutted by the FCC earlier this year.
California might become the first state in the nation to force publicly traded companies to put women on their boards of directors.
Net neutrality was in the national spotlight last week when Verizon was reported to have slowed the speed of the Santa Clara County Fire Department's wireless data.
The move by state legislators is a rejection of the Trump administration's repeal of national net neutrality rules that did not allow internet service providers to discriminate in their handling of internet traffic.
The bills all go to Democratic Gov. The bill also tasks the state attorney general with evaluating potential evasion of the net neutrality rules on a case-by-case basis. "This (bill) will catch on and affect the debate".
State Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, left, receives congratulations from Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, center, and Sen. Brown has not publicly stated whether or not he will sign the bill, though it has broad support from state Democrats.

And it would make it illegal for carriers to exempt apps from consumers' monthly data caps if doing so could harm competing start-ups and small businesses in "abusive" ways.
Internet providers say they've publicly committed to upholding the values of net neutrality, but strict rules like California's would inhibit investment in faster technology. They expressed disappointment over the vote. Many fear the "cabelisation of the internet" that would occur under the absence of net neutrality.

"This should send a message to other states as well as to members of Congress, Americans are serious about the importance of net neutrality, and are ready and willing to fight for their right to create, communicate, and engage online without giant ISPs serving as gatekeepers", Stevenson said in a statement.
