Montana's Governor Signs EO Requiring ISPs To Adhere To Net Neutrality Principles If They Want To Enter Into State Contracts

Via The Hill:

Steve Bullock, Montana's Governor, has signed an executive order that requires ISPs to adhere to net neutrality principles if they want to enter into state contracts. Noted Governor Bullock, 

“There has been a lot of talk around the country about how to respond to the recent decision by Federal Communications Commission to repeal net neutrality rules, which keep the internet free and open. It’s time to actually do something about it,” said Governor Bullock. “This is a simple step states can take to preserve and protect net neutrality. We can’t wait for folks in Washington DC to come to their senses and reinstate these rules.”


Here is a link to the text of the EO.
