Nebraska introduces pro-net neutrality legislation

The Hill reports that Nebraska is the first Republican-controlled state to launch its own attempt to save net neutrality rules.

On Friday, state Sen. Adam Morfeld (D) introduced legislation in the state legislature to enshrine net neutrality regulations in law on the state level.

Morfeld’s bill would keep broadband providers like AT&T and Comcast from slowing down or blocking internet content and from cutting deals with content companies to give them faster connection speeds.

California, Washington, New York and Massachusetts are also reportedly considering adoption of net neutrality rules
