Require ISP's with state contracts to abide by net neutrality principles.
This petition had 8,146 supporters
I'm calling on Governor Snyder 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 Michigan 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 am submitting this petition to you Governor Snyder to please require all internet service providers to abide by Net Neutrality rules. It is not only a good program for the government but also for all the citizens of Michigan.
