Require ISP's with California contracts to abide by net neutrality principles.
This petition had 49 supporters
I'm calling on Governor Jerry Brown to issue an executive order requiring internet service providers with state contracts to abide by net neutrality principles.
This would mean that in order to receive a contract with the state of California government, internet service providers like Verizon and Comcast must not block or throttle web content or create internet fast lanes. State governments can be some of the biggest consumers of internet services so this will send a strong message.
Furthermore, this can be done. In January of 2018, Montana Governor Steve Bullock (D) signed an executive order to do just this, explaining “This is a simple step states can take to preserve and protect net neutrality. We can’t wait for folks in Washington DC to come to their senses and reinstate these rules.”
I want to ensure that my fellow Californians and I have equal and fair access to the internet. The internet is not for sale.
Please accept my petition asking Governor Jerry Brown to require all internet service providers with state contracts to abide by net neutrality rules.
