Under the Congressional Review Act, legislators have 60 days to reverse decisions made by independent agencies.
As of Friday, California, Washington, New York, Rhode Island, Nebraska and MA had introduced net neutrality, with North Carolina and IL considering similar legislation.
"A free and open internet drives innovation, economic growth, and consumer choice", Becerra said in a statement. "As home to countless start-ups and technology giants alike, California knows this better than anywhere else", Becerra said. The petitioners will likely argue the FCC oversaw a flawed comment period and ignored sound reasoning on the road to a net neutrality appeal.
The AG's Office noted, "u$3 nder the Administrative Procedure Act, the FCC can not make "arbitrary and capricious" changes to existing policies, such as net neutrality". The FCC's new rule fails to justify the Commission's departure from its long-standing policy and practice of defending net neutrality, while misinterpreting and disregarding critical record evidence on industry practices and harm to consumers and businesses. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said recently that Democrats plan to turn net neutrality into an issue in the midterm elections later this year, using the strong support for net neutrality as a way to draw support for Democratic candidates.

"When we force a vote on this bill, Republicans in Congress will - for the first time - have the opportunity to right the administration's wrong and show the American people whose side they're on: big ISPs and major corporations or consumers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners", he added. The final numbers on the bill have left Senate Democrats one vote short of the 51 needed to pass a Senate resolution of disapproval.
But Democrats still need one more Republican to get past Vice President Mike Pence's tie-breaking vote, and it's not clear who that would be.
But even if the Senate Democrats secure another vote, the bill faces an uphill battle.
