    With the legislation as Stevens wrote it the telcos do. They control the pipes and determine what content has priority. We just get stuck with their decisions, kind of like cable tv now.

    •  Can they just table it all? (0+ / 0-)

      I've read through the Stevens proposal and you're right - it's completely unacceptable.  I keep seeing Snowe/Dorgan refered to as an amendment, but then I also see it with a Senate bill number; which is it?  Given a choice between Snowe/Dorgan and Stevens, the former wins hands-down.  But I still don't like the wording.

        as stand alone legislation as S 2917, and is now being offered as an amendment in committee. If it doesn't pass there, they'll offer it on the floor, I'm sure.

        Unfortunately, the telcos have pushed this so hard that it's not going to be tabled.
