California Puts Own Net-Neutrality Law on Hold

Our users in California may find this interesting. The State of California has decided to delay the implementation of its own recently passed Net Neutrality legislation in order to allow a final decision to be reached in a federal lawsuit against the Trump Administration.

Oral arguments are scheduled for February 1st, 2019 in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in a case opposing the Trump Administration’s overturning Net Neutrality laws established under the Obama Administration.

From U.S. New & World Reports:

A federal judge on Friday approved an agreement between California, the Justice Department and the trade groups to delay implementation and the legal challenges to the state law.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, who led the effort to overturn the Obama era net neutrality rules, said in a statement California’s “substantial concession reflects the strength of the case made by the United States earlier this month. It also demonstrates … there is no urgent problem that these regulations are needed to address.”

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said the decision was “intended to put us in the best position to preserve net neutrality for the 40 million people of our state. We are fighting the Trump Administration’s attempt to repeal net neutrality in the D.C. Circuit Court and we will vigorously defend California’s own net neutrality law.”
