For the people of Connecticut, the fight to preserve net neutrality rules is not yet over. Time to pursue open internet endeavor despite encountering a few obstacles.
The Republicans have blocked a Connecticut General Assembly recommendation for almost two weeks now. But state legislators still pursue the open internet endeavor even though it is impeded.
Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff introduced the petition in the Energy and Technology Committee. This is an open internet endeavor to counter the possible risks of the rollback to the state’s economy.
He proposed that ISPs to continue not blocking websites, throttling speeds, or employing prioritization pricing. Also, a mechanism must be established to confirm that they will not engage in practices opposed to net neutrality guidelines.
Consumers and small-scale enterprise might have given their support. However, the open internet endeavor could have been not enough as Republicans opposed the bill and turned it down. They contend that net neutrality rules should be the concern of the federal government.
Republican Sen. Paul Formica (East Lyme), divided the council for voting. It consists of two Democrats and two Republicans which resulted in a tie. This led to the dismissal of the bill, but if the whole committee had voted, the bill is likely to pass.
“At this point, it seemed to be the proper procedure to just end the conversation,” Formica said who is also the panel co-chairman.
Meanwhile, several other states are taking double time before the day that net neutrality rollback goes back into effect. Yesterday, Oregon became the second state to enact its own bill to preserve neutrality after Gov. Kate Brown signed it. Washington was the first.
