OLYMPIA – Washington should keep equal access to the internet even if the federal government won’t, the House decided Friday.
With an overwhelming 93-5 vote, the House passed a state version of “net neutrality,” designed to ensure that internet service providers don’t treat some businesses or customers differently, with either higher fees or slower speeds. The Federal Communications Commission recently removed regulations that required such equal treatment nationally.
