A forbidding state and local governments from raising taxes on connections that link consumers to the Internet for the next three years. >> Correct idiom is 'forbid X to Y' where X is some kind of person/object and Y is action. Also, 'Internet for the next three years' is wrong, suggesting that taxes would link the consumer for three years

B that forbids state and local governments for the next three years from raising taxes on connections that link consumers to the Internet.

C that for the next three years forbids state and local governments to raise taxes on connections that link consumers to the Internet. >> Correct

D forbidding for the next three years to state and local governments the raising of taxes on connections that link consumers to the Internet >> Illogical usage of the idiom

E that forbids for the next three years state and local governments from raising taxes on connections that link consumers to the Internet.
