It’s never too late for the lawgivers of Illinois to establish their own net neutrality rules.
The House Cybersecurity, Data Analytics, & IT Committee approved the measure that State Rep. Ann Williams has instituted. The Committee will restrain state contracts subjected to compliance with the net neutrality repeal. The bill is just waiting for a House vote to approve the open internet rules.
According to Rep. Williams, currently, the companies do not exercise throttling. Likewise, it does not employ any taking advantage procedures. However, she suggested that the open internet rules will require them not to do so in the coming years. That is if they want to do business in the state.
Illinois’ open internet rules will also oblige ISPs to reveal their website procedures. Infringement of the future law has its sanction. The attorney general will pursue the company in the state’s circuit court.
Rep. William’s bill, HB4819 will establish the Broadband Procurement and Disclosure Act. Expectedly, Republican reps challenged it during the April 11 hearing. The open internet rules say that ISPs with broadband service will have no state contract. This is unless they disclose particular stipulations regarding access and connection flag.
Oppositions argued that 2017 FCC rule prohibits states from regulating the internet. Else, any state open internet rules will be challenged in court.
