Defying the FCC, New York's governor has signed an executive order on net neutrality

Posted in: Government & Policy at 25/01/2018 14:35

The state of New York became the second state to put itself on a collision course with federal officials as its governor, Andrew M. Cuomo, signed an executive order Wednesday designed to flout the Federal Communications Commission's recent decision to repeal its net neutrality rules.

The order escalates a deeply polarized battle over the future of the Web and highlights the role states play as they seek to respond to major deregulatory decisions coming out of Washington.

Cuomo's order comes two days after Montana's governor, Steve Bullock, signed his own executive order in a bid to circumvent the FCC.
