USA federal government sues California after it signs net neutrality law

Gov. Jerry Brown speaks during an interview with The Associated Press in Sacramento Calif. California has become the first state to require publicly traded companies to include women on their boards of director

Jerry Brown's decision to sign the bill into law has sent Trump into a spin.

Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown adopts its own net neutrality law prompting the Justice Department to sue the state in an effort to block what's describe as the "toughest net neutrality law" enacted. They say it's unrealistic to expect them to comply with internet regulations that differ from state to state.

The justice department lawsuit marked the latest clash between the Trump administration and California, which have sparred over environmental, immigration and other hot-button issues.

However, Attorney General Jeff Sessions quickly reiterated the federal government is the only authority that can rule on net neutrality policies. California is now set to wage a legal battle against the federal regulator that will decide the outcome of state-level net neutrality in the entire country. It also specifically prohibits ISPs from charging online services access fees to reach customers, otherwise known as paid prioritization.

It's the first net neutrality case to involve the Justice Department directly, and the outcome could affect not just how consumers experience the Web in the Golden State but also potentially across the entire nation. "Other states should follow California's lead, and Congress should pass the joint resolution to reverse the FCC's resoundingly unpopular repeal".

Tuesday marked National Daughters Day, and Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated by honoring her attractive mini me, 14-year-old Apple Martin.

According to the National Conference of State Legislature, Oregon, Vermont and Washington have enacted their own net neutrality laws and governors in six states have signed executive orders affirming some degree of net neutrality.

Pai issued a statement after California's law passed, saying, "the law prohibits many free-data plans, which allows consumers to stream video, music, and the like exempt from any data limits". And it's a beacon of hope for Internet users everywhere who are fighting for the basic right to express themselves and access information without cable and phone companies controlling what they can see and do online." said Evan Greer (pronouns: "she/her), deputy director of Fight for the Future, the digital rights group that played a leading role in passing SB 822 and bringing national attention to the bill.

In August, 22 states and a coalition of trade groups representing major tech companies urged a federal appeals court to reinstate the rules. Connie Leyva, D-Chino, would have required university health centers to offer women medical abortions on campus by January 1, 2022. When all is said and done, Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T are going to wish they'd never picked a fight with Internet over net neutrality.

The FCC in December handed ISPs sweeping new powers to recast how Americans use the internet, as long as they disclose changes. The new rules went into effect in June.
