California Senate Passes Bill to Restore Net Neutrality Regulations

The California Senate has voted to approve a bill to restore net neutrality regulations repealed by the Federal Communications Commission in December. Makena Kelly reporting in The Verge: “The bill, S.B. 822, authored by Sen. Scott Wiener (D - San Francisco), was introduced in March and passed through three committees, all along party-lines. The bill was approved 23 - 12 and will now head to the state Assembly. ... But the bill also takes the original rules further by specifically banning providers from participating in some types of “zero-rating” programs, in which certain favored content doesn’t contribute to monthly data caps.”
