California net neutrality bill strengthened after lawmakers reach deal

The key protections that were removed, will be restored. The exact language of the bill won’t be made public until August, when the Legislature returns from summer recess and it can be officially amended into SB822.

Net neutrality bars broadband and wireless internet providers from using their networks to favor certain websites and apps, especially those they own or have financial ties to, over others.

The bill has drawn intense interest across the country, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — who rarely weighs in on state legislation — pushing for California to pass the bill in hopes that other states will do the same as a backdoor to restoring the regulations.
