USTelecom, CTIA, NCTA and ACA filed a joint lawsuit Wednesday in federal court challenging California’s net neutrality bill in yet another show of opposition to the legislation.

Signed into law by Gov Jerry Brown Sunday, the immediately drew the attention of regulators. Shortly after its passing, the DOJ filed a lawsuit against the state.

In a joint statement, the groups said they oppose California’s action to regulate internet access, saying it threatens to negatively affect services for millions of consumers and harm new investment and economic growth.

“Republican and Democratic administrations, time and again, have embraced the notion that actions like this are preempted by federal law,” the parties said. “We believe the courts will continue to uphold that fundamental principle. Meanwhile, we will continue our work to ensure Congress adopts bipartisan legislation to create a permanent framework for protecting the open internet that consumers expect and deserve.”
