Maine waters down, passes network neutrality resolution

Filed under
Misc

Maine has become the first state in the US to pass network neutrality legislation, although the resolution that was finally passed is significantly weaker than the initial bill that was considered.

That bill was amended, though, and the amendment rewrote the entire bill, turning it into a much weaker resolution that essentially does nothing but express concern and call for a report. The state will keep a special eye on the FCC and its actions regarding network neutrality but will do no actual regulating itself. The Office of the Public Advocate needs only to submit a report to the Legislature by next February.
