Weiser: Absent federal law, Colorado should take steps to protect an open internet
Mar. 28, 2019 (DENVER, Colo.) — In a letter to the chairman of the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee, Attorney General Phil Weiser today gave his support to SB19-078, “Concerning the Protection of the Open Internet”. In absence of congressional action, states should provide consumer protections in the area of net neutrality, said Weiser.
“Senate Bill 19-078 is a well-crafted measure to exert more consumer protections for Coloradans. As the internet continues to be a more important and indispensable tool in our daily lives, SB 19-078 is one step that the State can take protect an open internet. I am grateful to Representatives Hansen and Herod, and Senators Bridges and Donovan for their leadership in bringing this important bill forward,” Weiser says in his letter to Chairman Chris Kennedy.
