Senate Committee May Vote on Net Neutrality Provisions
Net neutrality may come up for a vote in a Senate committee vote on Thursday. The bill in question would allow consumers upload and access any and all legal content on the Internet. Congress is considering massive telecommunications reform. This legislation is separate from that effort. According to the San Jose Mercury News, two senators will propose legislation that prevents telecoms and cable providers from creating service tiers. These type amendments have consistently failed in the House as they have considered similar legislation. Given that there are Internet heavy hitters (and deep, deep pockets) on both sides this one is far from over.
