The California bill prohibits internet providers from blocking, slowing down, or speeding up content from certain sites or apps.
In June, the FCC under President Donald Trump repealed rules adopted during the Obama administration that barred internet service providers from blocking content or charging more for access, a move meant to establish a more level playing field or "net neutrality". If Brown signs it by September 30, it would establish a working group on blockchain by July 1, 2019, to study the technology's uses, risks, benefits and legal implications for state government and the private sector, with input from stakeholders. Broadband-industry-backed groups such as CALinnovates and the Congress of California Seniors argued against it.
Some are opposed to the new California bill.
The FCC did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Such orders, largely pioneered by the state, have been derided as "turn in your neighbor" laws as they allow for temporary gun seizures with the accused only able to appear in court after the fact in many cases. New York State is considering a net neutrality law that mirrors the California Bill.
Lawmakers said internet service providers had already indicated to them that they would sue to overturn a net neutrality law.

"Telecommunications companies have tremendous power and sway in California, so we know the fight is not over", said Barbara van Schewick, a professor of law at Stanford University, who has been a strong proponent of net neutrality laws.
Before SB 822's passage, net neutrality advocates spotted robocalls being made to senior citizens to try and convince them to speak up against internet protections like the ones in the bill.
The legislation has been championed by consumer advocacy groups, small businesses, and some technology companies including Sonos, Etsy and Reddit, but criticized by the telecom industry.
