Governor Bullock Protects Net Neutrality in Montana - Governor Steve Bullock

Separately that same day, Senate Democrats announced plans to formally introduce a resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act to reverse the FCC's vote and restore the Net Neutrality rules.

As the New York Times reports, Bullock, a Democrat, will be signing an executive order that requires any internet service provider doing business with Montana's government to abide by the tenets of net neutrality.

That makes Montana the first state to successfully push back against last month's ruling of the Republican-led FCC, which essentially dismantled the rules adopted under the Obama administration in 2015.

It's not yet clear whether any part of the FCC's recent decision - including the provisions that prevent states from creating their own rules - will hold up in court. "It's time to actually do something about it".

In the wake of the FCC's repeal of Title II classification for ISPs, states are beginning to look to themselves to preserve net neutrality. "We can't wait for folks in Washington DC to come to their senses and reinstate these rules".

If other states follow suit, it could have a significant impact - both on large telecommunications companies with state contracts and smaller companies trying to get into the market, said Christopher Mitchell with the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, which supports net neutrality.

Governor Bullock knows that his action, or even his method, alone will not be enough. This also extends to other service providers that work over the internet, such as subscription-based platforms and online service platforms like Netflix, WhatsApp, and other similar services.

Through an executive order, Gov. Steve Bullock will declare that any internet service provider with a state government contract can not block or charge more for faster delivery of websites, two core aspects of net neutrality, to any customer in the state.

The order states that "the free and open exchange of information, secured by a free and open internet, has never been more essential to modern social, commercial and civic life", and that "Montana citizens rely on a free and open internet to meet the world".

The executive order is attached.
