Iowa AG sues federal government over net neutrality

Local News

Iowa’s attorney general is joining 20 other state attorneys general in suing the federal government over the repeal of net neutrality rules.

Attorney General (AG) Tom Miller says the end of net neutrality will hurt both consumers and businesses.

The rules were recently un-done by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Those rules barred internet service providers from interring with web traffic and favoring their own sites and apps.

AG Miller said, “I don’t know if other states will join or not. We hope they do. They’re certainly welcome. And there is time, but there may not be a lot of other states joining.”

Iowa’s Miller and the other AG’s say the FCC was unjustified in departing from their long-standing policy of defending net neutrality.
