California neutrality bill moves forward to enactment.
It’s a victorious moment for Sen. Scott Weiner and his California net neutrality bill (SB 822). Advocates cheered while oppositions protested.
The California neutrality bill passed the Senate Council on a Tuesday hearing. It is an overwhelming moment for the Californians. As expected, Broadband and cable companies are full of displeasure.
The state lawmakers gave the California neutrality bill thumbs-up signs. Eight Democrats voted “yes” and three “no” for Republicans.
Sen.Weiner’s SB 822 bans ISPs from imposing fees to dominant providers for connection to end users. Also, the California net neutrality bill disallows ISPs from evading the rules on the verge of their network link.
According to Sen. Weiner, Californians want to restore net neutrality. He added that it is not a partisan concern. His bill, however, needs to endure a rough road before the Legislature houses approve it.
Before it could ring in a vote from the entire Senate, the draft needs to withstand the Senate Judiciary Committee. Likewise, it needs the approval of the Democratic-majority State Assembly. Governor Jerry Brown should also give his consent to the California net neutrality bill.
The council discarded a proposition that will make the state Public Utilities Commission controls net neutrality rules. It emphasized as well how state attorney general’s office will administer concerns. Atty. Xavier Becerra is a state attorney general who presented a letter that sponsored the California net neutrality bill on April 17.
Just a few more days and the repeal will be put into place. Several states have presented their measures but only two have enacted so far. The governors of the Washington state and Oregon have signed the bill to make it a law. And California net neutrality bill is waiting for its turn.
At Decenternet, there is no net neutrality bill to sign or to pass. It is itself the internet and platform that restore open internet. The system it uses is not designed for surveillance.
Users of Decenternet have unconstrained access to the decentralized network. They could access traditional websites without blocking, throttling, or be getting into paid prioritization.
