ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexico is joining the legal fight in the repeal of net neutrality rules.  Attorney General Hector Balderas announced Friday that he has joined other state attorneys from around the country in a multi-state lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission.

“In a state that already struggles to ensure equal internet access for all New Mexicans, the FCC's blatant, un-American attack on a free and open internet will only further harm vulnerable New Mexican consumers and families, so I will take aggressive legal action to stop the illegal rollback of net neutrality protections,” said Attorney General Hector Balderas

Thursday, the FCC voted along party lines to eliminate rules that prohibit internet service providers from blocking or throttling internet traffic.

The repeal also allows for providers to charge consumers more to access popular sites like Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter.
