The executive order notably sets the terms on which the State of Montana will be making purchases and makes a preference for a free and open internet clear.
The new rule would affect any new or newly renewed contract inked after July 1 of this year.
Ernesto Falcon, a legislative counsel at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit that advocates for digital rights, welcomed Bullock's measure.
But Bullock's advisors are confident that this method of regulating government contracts and not the providers directly provides a legal loophole to reinstate the spirit of net neutrality rules.
The FCC has pointed to the fact that as a part of the order, until the new changes have been entered into the federal registry there can be no legal action against the repeal, which may happen in the coming weeks.
That makes Montana the first state to successfully push back against last month's ruling of the Republican-led FCC, which essentially dismantled the rules adopted under the Obama administration in 2015.

According to the Times, several trade groups said they were monitoring Bullock's order and were considering lawsuits.
