Gov. Polis is about to sign a Colorado net neutrality bill — one with some serious teeth: Colorado's “open internet” bill would punish internet-providing violators by taking their grant money away
The Colorado net neutrality law is similar to the former federal one in that it would prohibit ISPs from prioritizing certain content. It would also force violating ISPs that benefited from state broadband grants to refund all money received in the previous 24 months.

“I have a follow-up to my colleague’s question” – finally, the White House press corps works together
In an increasingly rare briefing from the podium on Monday – her first in 42 days – Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced a White House press corps that felt much more like it was actually doing its job of holding the president to account than it has on previous outings.

On Friday, the president slammed the Democrats as an “anti-Israel” and “anti-Jewish” party. The tension between Sanders and reporters was so frosty by the end of the briefing that it led April Ryan, a veteran White House reporter, to note the “change in atmosphere in here.” The first question Sanders was asked was whether Trump “believes that Democrats hate Jews,” referring to the preposterous statement the president made in response to the furore
