Update 8-30-2018: The vote count was updated to reflect the final vote count.
After a long and hard-fought battle, one where you made your voices heard, California’s Assembly passed S.B. 822, the net neutrality bill. But we’re not quite done yet.
In a bipartisan vote of 61-18, S.B. 822 passed the Assembly. Now it needs to pass the Senate again.
ISPs have tried hard to gut and kill this bill, pouring money and robocalls into California. There was a moment where that campaign looked like it might have been successful, but you spoke out and got strong net neutrality protections restored. But that hiccup means that, although a version of the bill already passed in the California Senate, it’s now different enough from that initial version to have to be re-voted on.
We’re in the home stretch here. California could pass a gold standard net neutrality bill, providing a template for states going forward. California can prove that ISP money can’t defeat real people’s voices. So, one more time, contact your California state senator and tell them to vote yes on S.B. 822.
