Net neutrality? Fight back in Oregon.

The Trump administration wants to gut net neutrality. Drop protections that ensure a free and open internet. Hand over outrageous profits to Big Cable at the expense of consumers.

It's shameful. That's why, here in Oregon, we're doing our part to fight back.

The Oregon plan will preserve a big chunk of net neutrality at the state level.

My top priority during the ongoing 35-day legislative session is to adopt some of Oregon's own net neutrality protections.

This week, I went down to the Capitol and testified in favor House Bill 4155, which would give Oregon new tools to restore some of what the FCC has undone.

The Trump administration and Republicans in Congress are clearly not looking out for the people of Oregon, our small businesses, and our entrepreneurs. So we have to look out for ourselves.

I have already joined with other state attorneys general to challenge the FCC's decision to repeal net neutrality. Of course, we hope to win in court. But we are not stopping there. And we can do it locally.

Oregon proudly leads on many national debates that matter to Americans: health care, women's rights, immigrant protections, marijuana legalization.

Here's another opportunity for us to tell the Trump Administration that Oregon does not back down.

Call your legislators. Tell your friends to do the same. Let's build a movement for an open and free internet right here in Oregon.

I will be in touch to let you know about the next steps. Stay tuned.
