CTIA & CCTA Statement on Assembly Committee’s Passage of Net Neutrality Legislation .
SACRAMENTO – The California Cable and Telecommunications Association (CCTA) and CTIA put out the following statement today, following the California State Assembly Communications and Conveyance Committee’s passage of Senator Scott Weiner’s Net Neutrality legislation SB 822:
“We are committed to an open internet and to protecting consumers online. We are disappointed that Chairman Santiago led an effort to continue with poorly conceived state specific Net Neutrality regulations. Unfortunately, SB 822 – and the proposed amendments – would inhibit investment and innovation in California. What the country needs is permanent bipartisan federal legislation that will benefit consumers and ensure consistent rules of the road for all companies and across all websites.”
