Beshear, Attorneys General Taking Legal Action to Stop Net Neutrality Rollback

Attorney General Andy Beshear has taken legal action against the Federal Communications Commission for its rollback of net neutrality regulations. The attorney general said he is opposing the repeal because of the destructive nature it will have on every Kentuckian, from farmers to college students, who use free and open internet to thrive and prosper. Beshear, along with a coalition of state attorneys general, filed a petition on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 for review in the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, formally commencing the lawsuit against the FCC and the federal government. The group maintains the FCC’s recent action violates the federal Administrative Procedure Act, as well as numerous state and local laws.
