Washington becomes first state to OK net-neutrality rules in defiance of FCC shift

WASHINGTON GOVERNOR JAY Inslee on Monday signed the nation’s first state law intended to protect net neutrality, setting up a potential legal battle with the Federal Communications Commission.

The law bans broadband providers offering service in the state from blocking or throttling legal content, or from offering fast-lane access to companies willing to pay extra. The law doesn’t stop providers from imposing data limits and doesn’t address the practice of allowing certain content to bypass data limits, known as “zero rating.”

The FCC attempted to preempt any such state laws when it voted to repeal its own net neutrality rules in December, setting up the potential legal clash. Legal experts are unsure how such a dispute will play out.

    Dopey was in Sac pissing and moaning CA wouldn’t let ICE grab so-called “criminal” immigrants. I bout fell over when he praised Rayguns AG; Ed Meese. The same guy that flew out here to join a pot bust then jumped back on a plane to DC and resigned. One more bust for the Gipper!

    To the Hillside Cafe and then to Kimbrough for the oboe duet concert followed by home again was 30 minutes of stick walking. The duet pair are Chinese, maybe from Taiwan. They play interesting music, even dancing in the last piece based on a poem by Neruda. Said goodnight to Alice, not more as she is ignoring me these days.

    Day 4: 221+30=251 minutes.
