California senate votes for net neutrality

by Steve Blum • , , ,

The California senate voted 21 to 12 earlier today to approve senate bill 460, which would reinstate network neutrality rules in California, in the unlikely event federal courts declare the FCC’s decision to scrap those regs to be arbitrary, capricious and an abuse of discretion. It was mostly along party lines, with Richard Roth (D – Riverside) voting no, but no republicans voting yes and several senators on both sides sitting it out. Next stop is the California assembly.
