NY Governor Signs Executive Order on Net Neutrality

National Public Radio

As the first governor in the country to implement action in the wake of the FCC's decision to repeal net neutrality rules, Governor Bullock invited other governors and statehouses to join him.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office agreed to investigate potential fraud and the misuse of American identities during the federal rulemaking process, Schneiderman stated.

The CEO said AT&T plans to work with Congress, other internet companies and consumer groups in the coming months to push for the "Internet Bill of Rights".

The order states that the internet is "an essential service that should be available to all New Yorkers" and that the FCC's decision aligned with corporations' interests over those of city dwellers.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo enacted the policy through executive order Wednesday, following a similar move by Montana Gov. Steve Bullock on Monday.

Broadband companies that want to do business with state agencies in New York will have to abide by some key net neutrality rules, under an order signed Wednesday by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

In supporting the elimination of net neutrality regulations, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called the Internet "the greatest free-market innovation in history" and argued "there was no problem to solve" when the rules were put in place in 2015. "I look forward to working with the Governor to push my legislation in the Assembly to ensure that net neutrality is permanently enshrined in statute in NY". The FCC has said it will take states to court if they seek to circumvent its decision, but this is no guarantee, and the Telcos are anxious about it and are leaning on the Senate. It faces long odds because it is unlikely to make it past the Republican-led House or President Trump's desk. Measures in MA and Georgia would set state net neutrality rules.

But even if the FCC's ban on state regulation were upheld, that is different from states deciding which ISPs their own agencies will use.

"They have to try and fight back against a local uprising", he said.

In a series of full-page ads in major newspapers such as The Washington Post and the New York Times, AT&T chief executive Randall Stephenson proposed an "Internet Bill of Rights" that could help guarantee an open internet, one in which online content is not blocked or slowed down by telecom or cable companies, nor by Internet companies such as Google or Facebook. But then, with only five minutes' notice, students in the classroom just 6 blocks from Montana's state capitol looked up from their screens and got an impromptu civics lesson - from the governor himself. He said that Cuomo's action also forces ISPs to defend why they wouldn't be using net neutrality principles, putting them on the wrong side of public opinion.
