Oregon Governor Kate Brown today will sign a net neutrality bill into law, making Oregon the second state to pass a net neutrality law since the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal nationwide rules.
Brown announced on Friday that she would sign the bill Monday during an event at a middle school. The bill was previously approved by the state House and Senate.
The new law was written narrowly in an attempt to survive lawsuits from ISPs. Instead of imposing prohibitions on all Internet providers, the law forbids state agencies from purchasing fixed or mobile Internet service from ISPs that violate the core net neutrality principles laid out in the soon-to-be-dead FCC rules.
