Ahead of Brown signing the bill, Trump-appointed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Ajit Pai slammed the California's net-neutrality effort as "a radical, anti-consumer internet regulation" that in his view is illegal.

They had cheered California's attempt to force the Obama-era rules back into effect through state legislation.

The Federal Communications Commission previous year repealed rules that prevented internet companies from exercising more control over what people watch and see on the internet.

A new law requires publicly traded companies headquartered in California, including Facebook and Google, to include women on their board of directors.

In response to the new California law, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said "states do not regulate interstate commerce - the federal government does".

Under President Donald Trump, the FCC voted 3-2 in December along party lines to reverse rules that barred internet service providers from blocking or throttling traffic or offering paid fast lanes, also known as paid prioritization.

The DOJ is not the only ones moving to stop this new law.

Jerry Brown vetoed a bill on Sunday that would have mandated California public universities to provide abortion pills, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. In light of the FCC's more recent deregulatory order, federal officials are asking for California's net neutrality law to be invalidated, and industry groups are expected to join the effort. An identical bill was introduced in NY.

Barbara van Schewick, a law professor at Stanford University and an advocate for tougher net neutrality policies, agreed.

"That preemption of the states, despite the federal government relinquishing regulation itself, was upheld by the courts", Martin said, adding that it still was an act of Congress itself.

Supporters of Net Neutrality, Toyah and Lance Brown Eyes, protest the FCC's decision to repeal the program in Los Angeles, California, November 28, 2017. "We are confident that we will prevail in this case -because the facts are on our side".

Disregarding the clear popular support for such protections and showing its commitment to seeing net neutrality destroyed, the Trump administration immediately sued California after Gov. It's meant to replace federal rules to the same effect that were repealed last December.

USTelecom, which represents companies like AT&T and Verizon, on Sunday said the California measure would not "help advance the promise and potential of California's innovation DNA", calling on Congress to "step up with a national framework for the whole internet ecosystem and resolve this issue once and for all".
