Hey all,

I know this has been discussed before, but here is 
the latest development in what has been called the 
"Internet neutrality" legislation.

I believe there was discussion before about 
whether or not this is real or a "wild goose 
chase." It is real, and has been pointed out, 
legislation does not get bill numbers until they 
leave committee, as it looks like this one will 
soon, but as of yet I don't believe there is a 
bill number.

"Today, a Republican-dominated House Committee 
caved to telecom companies like AT&T and voted to 
gut Net Neutrality, the Internet's First 
Amendment. It's too bad we lost the vote, but more 
important votes on this issue are coming—and what 
the big telecom companies weren't expecting was 
that we'd get as many votes as we did."

You can see how the vote went here:
