Gov. Jerry Brown signs bill requiring California corporate boards to include women

Now the Department of Justice is suing California saying their new net neutrality law breaks federal law. The Justice Department also said the new bill goes against the federal government's "de-regulatory approach to the internet". The constitutionality of California's law - and whether other states can adopt their own net neutrality rules - depends heavily on the outcome of a pending case in a Washington, D.C., federal appeals court, van Schewick said.

Advocates hope California's new law to stop internet providers from favoring certain content or websites will push Congress to enact national rules or encourage other states to create their own.

"There have been numerous objections to this bill and serious legal concerns have been raised", Brown said in a letter to the state Senate.

The Justice Department nearly immediately filed its lawsuit, arguing Senate Bill 822 interferes with the federal government's deregulatory approach to the internet, according to a statement.

Brown stopped short on Sunday of making California the first state to mandate public colleges and universities offer abortion medication at their health centers.

Germany wins hosting rights for Euro 2024, pips competition from Turkey
Germany will host the Euro 2024 soccer tournament after beating Turkey in a two-horse contest on Thursday (Sept 27). Europe's signature competition was hosted in 1988 by West Germany , one year before the Berlin Wall came down.

Rules governing online access have undergone numerous court challenges and regulatory moves over the past decade, and in December the Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 along party lines to reverse a 2015 order which established net neutrality.

Ajit Pai, the Trump-appointed head of the FCC who was responsible for the repeal of these federal-level laws in June, reaffirmed the preemption of federal law against state regulation.

After a contentious fight in the state legislature-where large internet service provides (ISPs) like Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast tried to water-down or kill the bill-final passage of SB 822, spearheaded by Democratic State Senator Scott Weiner, was signed by Gov.

The lawsuit argues that the Californian legislation is "unlawful and anti-consumer", as it imposes restrictions on telecommunications companies. "The law prohibits many free-data plans, which allow consumers to stream video, music, and the like exempt from any data limits". As a result, the Trump administration wants to make an example of California. "California fought Trump and Sessions on their immigration lawsuit - California won - and California will fight this lawsuit as well", Wiener said in a statement.

"When the FCC chose to ignore the millions of consumers who urged them not to repeal net neutrality protections a year ago, it left a void that state lawmakers are now rightfully filling", Jonathan Schwantes, senior policy counsel for Consumers Union tells the Times.
