Governor signs executive order to protect and strengthen net neutrality in NYS

ALBANY, N.Y. (WKBW) - Governor Andrew Cuomo today signed an executive order to protect and strengthen net neutrality in New York.

New York's government is directed through this Executive Order not to enter into any contracts for internet service unless the ISPs agree to follow net neutrality principles.

"The FCC's dangerous ruling goes against the core values of our democracy, and New York will do everything in our power to protect net neutrality and the free exchange of ideas," Governor Cuomo said. "With this executive order, we reaffirm our commitment to freedom and democracy and help ensure that the internet remains free and open to all."
