On March 30, Free State Foundation President Randolph May and I published an op-ed in Real Clear Markets that calls attention to how the VA Video Connect App is jeopardized by California's bad "net neutrality" regulation. The state's law flatly bans all "sponsored data" and "free data" plans that include specific websites or apps rather than to entire "categories." As we discuss in our op-ed, California's law jeopardizes the VA's app for providing telehealth to low income and rural veterans free of data usage charges. For more on the unwise and anti-consumer effects of California's law, be sure to check out our op-ed -- which has been republished at Multichannel News.
FSF's May & Cooper in @rc_markets: "CA's Net Neutrality Law Threatens Veterans' Telehealth"- "Net neutrality may sound superficially appealing...in reality they often harm consumers. In this instance, those harmed may include our veterans." @BrendanCarrFCC https://t.co/pHdK2SiRgn pic.twitter.com/ss5ZI8wARq— Free State Foundation (@FSFthinktank) March 30, 2021
