How can Minnesota get Net Neutrality?

Currently there is a bill (HF136 and SF317) in the Minnesota Legislature to adopt a Net Neutrality in Minnesota…

Internet service providers serving Minnesota customers and those under contract to the state or political subdivisions prohibited certain activities, and monetary fines authorized.

Without a crystal ball it’s difficult to know what will happen but there’s also a grass roots effort to promote Net Neutrality in Minnesota. Citizens are contacting Attorney General Keith Ellison and letting him know that they support Net Neutrality. According to the AG’s office, he needs letters with the sender’s name and address stating that net neutrality is important to them and that they would like the AG to go to court to establish it for our state.

It sounds like volume matters. So if you support Net Neutrality, here’s one action you can take.
