Require ISP's with Iowa state contracts to abide by net neutrality principles.

I'm calling on Governor Kim Reynolds 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 Iowa 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.”
Please sign my petition asking Governor Kim Reynolds to require all internet service providers with state contracts to abide by net neutrality rules.
Internet should be open and free to all, no one person or corporation should hold the key or control of the internet. The current Fcc board doesn't think big corp will abuse the power they have been given but without FCC or some sort of state regulations what's to stop them. My children attend school via the internet at home, what if they decide to make slow and fast lanes, my children and the hundreds of other Iowa children could lose good education from slow lanes created by big internet companies. Please Gov Kim Reynolds don't take the chance, please protect the free and open internet for all Iowans, and generations of Iowans to come.
