Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said it was "idiotic" for the FCC to roll back net neutrality rules, and that he hopes the administration reverses course.

Why it matters: Some local elected officials are taking a stand against the FCC's net neutrality decision. Garcetti said at the Upfront Summit in LA on Wednesday that it's another area where local governments can take a leadership position.
