Net neutrality measure moves in Colorado

Coverage Type: 

The Colorado House sent to the governor's desk a bill that attempts to ensure that telecommunications companies operating in the state abide by net neutrality standards tossed by the federal government in 2017. Under that measure, SB78, telecommunications companies that provide broadband services in Colorado would be barred from receiving state grants if they engage in slowing down or blocking competitors on the internet. Just like the Colorado Senate, the House approved the bill on a straight party-line vote. Both chambers are controlled by Democrats.
