Statement: Proposal to Delay Litigation Against California Internet Bill

Background: California, the Department of Justice and USTelecom, CTIA, NCTA and ACA – representing America’s broadband providers – have today agreed to propose a delay in federal court litigation against California’s Internet Bill (SB 822) while the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals continues consideration of Mozilla Corporation v. Federal Communications Commission.  In the meantime, California will not enforce SB 822 before that case is fully resolved.  Filings are available here: (1), (2), (3), and (4). 

The following statement is for attribution to USTelecom, CTIA, NCTA and ACA:

“California’s decision not to enforce its law regulating certain portions of the internet while the D.C. Circuit reviews the FCC’s 2017 Restoring Internet Freedom order is a win for consumers that will allow continued innovation and investment while these deliberations continue.  Our companies support an open internet, and we urge Congress to resolve this issue by passing a national framework to protect that principle for all Americans.”
