California is on track to find out just how much control one state can have over giant Internet service providers. This weekend, California passed a law making Internet providers treat all websites the same, no speeding up or slowing down access to certain sites. Within hours, the Trump administration announced that it's suing California. Earlier this year, the administration removed those standards at the federal level. Tim Wu is with us now. He's a Columbia Law professor. And he actually coined the term net neutrality.
Tim, welcome to the show.
TIM WU: Good morning.
MARTIN: Why is this a priority for the Department of Justice, net neutrality?
WU: You know, I think that they have decided they really want to have an environment where, you know, it's open for business, I guess is their argument. And they're concerned that California's meddling with federal policies.
