Submission + - Stimulus Bill Contains Net Neutrality Provision

visible.frylock writes: Cnet is reporting that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (PDF), currently in the House Appropriations Committee, contains Net Neutrality provisions:

The so-called stimulus package hands out billions of dollars in grants for broadband and wireless development, primarily in what are called "unserved" and "underserved" areas. [...] The catch is that the federal largesse comes with Net neutrality strings attached.

The broadband grants appear to begin in SEC. 3101 (pg. 49) of the PDF.
