Colorado appears to be on the verge of passing its own state-level net neutrality law.
The bill would block telecommunication companies from receiving state grants if they do not abide by net neutrality tenets. It passed through the state’s House on Thursday, setting it up for a signature from Gov. Jared Polis (D), according to the Colorado Sun.
Internet service providers would risk not receiving grants from Colorado’s broadband deployment board if they violate several net neutrality rules: blocking lawful internet content, engaging in paid prioritization, throttling internet traffic, and not providing reasonable transparency regarding practices.
The bill is expected to be signed by Polis, according to the Sun, whose spokesperson told the newspaper that he “supports this bill.”
Colorado would join a number of other states who have enacted state-level net neutrality laws since the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repealed the rules in 2017.
Some states, like California and Vermont, were sued over their net neutrality legislation. Both states agreed to delay their implementation until a decision is made in Mozilla Corp. v FCC by the United States Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit. The lawsuit challenges the legality of the FCC’s repeal.
The bill is expected to pass through the Democrat-controlled House, but faces more of an uphill battle in the Senate.
