MN Lawmakers Introduce Net Neutrality Bills

“State Rep. Paul Thissen and state Sen. Ron Latz announced Thursday that they were sponsoring bills that would require companies that do business in Minnesota to comply with “commonsense net neutrality principles.”

“Every day we inch closer to restricting consumers from having free and fair access to the internet,” said Thissen, DFL-Minneapolis. “The FCC has ruled in favor of special interests in the telecommunications industry, but that does not mean Minnesota will concede without a fight.”

Their bill improves protections for consumers, combats fraud and increases competitiveness, the lawmakers said in a statement.” ~Pioneer Press, March 1st
