After California's Senate passed the bill earlier this month, Governor Jerry Brown signed California's net neutrality bill into law this weekend. But before the ink was even dry, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against California in an attempt to stop the bill. The federal government claims that its the FCC's job to regulate broadband communication, while ISP lobbying groups say they wish to avoid "50 states stepping in with their own conflicting open internet solutions." The FCC repealed net neutrality nation wide earlier this year, and FCC chairman Ajit Pai strongly protested the bill after it passed through California's legislature. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that California's net neutrality law was illegal because Congress granted the federal government, through the F.C.C., the sole authority to create rules for broadband internet providers. "States do not regulate interstate commerce - the federal government does," Mr. Sessions said in a statement. "Once again the California legislature has enacted an extreme and illegal state law attempting to frustrate federal policy."
