We show that anomalously fast current penetration into a plasma can result from the nonlocal electrical conductivity caused by a stochastic magnetic field. We calculate the admittance of a plasma slab subjected to an oscillating surface electric field along B. The effect of increasing stochasticity (or of increasing electron mean free path) is to make the admittance less dissipative and more inductive.
