Submission Telcos move net neutrality to fight to congress

Presto Vivace writes: Public Knowledge Warns of Net Neutrality-Targeted Amendment

Public Knowledge is rallying its supporters after learning that some House members plan to try and add an amendment to H.R. 5016, the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act to block funding of FCC network neutrality rules. H.R. 5016 is the bill that keeps funding the government and whose failure to pass can shut it down. The White House has already said it opposed the existing FCC budget cuts and threatened a veto of a bill it says politicized the budget process.

Public Knowledge is asking citizens to tell congress to stop meddling with net neutrality. In a way this is a good sign. It is an indication that the telcos think that they will lose at the FCC.
