Edward Markey (D-Mass) has been the center of attention before, especially when he called for the arrest of slashdotter Christopher Soghoian for exposing airline security weaknesses.The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW) today condemned the introduction of the misnamed Internet Freedom Preservation Act, H.R. 5353, by House Subcommittee on Telecommunication and the Internet Chairman Edward Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Charles Pickering (R-Miss.). The bill would mandate eight Federal Communications Commission (FCC) hearings and a study of applying net neutrality regulations to high-speed Internet access services.
