twoallbeefpatties writes: via BoingBoing, a bill designed to give state universities more freedom gained an additional line at the 11th hour that would dismantle WiscNet, a nonprofit broadband system that serves schools and libraries in Wisconsin. The line could force the state to return stimulus funds that were planned to go to WiscNet's expansion, including money already spent. It's possible the line was the result of lobbying from AT&T, who would gain business by forcing more use of a more expensive private-public system.
