California Net Neutrality Law is a Fast Lane to a Court Loss

On Sunday, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed into law extreme legislation designed to protect so called “net neutrality.” The rules set forth by the legislation are not only a massive and unnecessary overreach based on faulty premises and wrought with unintended consequences but are also explicitly illegal under federal law. Thus, the federal Department of Justice filed suit against California mere hours later. In short, California has set forth on a fool’s errand guaranteed only to waste taxpayer resources on expensive litigation.

With the World Health Organization, the United States Should Get What It Pays For

Next month, the World Health Organization (WHO) will convene the eighth meeting of parties to the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in Geneva, Switzerland. The United States is sending a delegation to this international meeting; however, our nation’s representatives will only be able to participate under observer status since the Senate never ratified the FCTC. This does not mean Congress and the Trump administration should ignore what WHO is up to in the realm of tobacco regulation, particularly given America’s status as the largest contributor to the international body.

FCC Commissioner Carr’s 5G Plan is a Strong Conservative Answer on Tech

Today, executives of big tech platforms such as Facebook and Twitter faced heated questioning from members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. Democrats are upset with these companies over allegations the platforms are being abused to spread misinformation. Republicans are accusing these platforms of censoring certain speech. Unfortunately, while their complaints differ, both sides seem to be inching toward some sort of new regulatory scheme for this industry. This is to be expected from Democrats, but Republicans ought to know better. If they need some inspiration, they ought to look to what is happening at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), particularly what Republican Commissioner Brendan Carr announced just yesterday.
