Net Neutrality Committee Markup Today

Brian Zick

McJoan at dailykos reports that Ted Stevens has proposed an alleged "compromise on net neutrality" amendment. She further says that "The committee vote is likely to be on Tuesday, giving us five days to convince our Senators to vote against the Stevens proposal, and support the Snowe/Dorgan bill (S. 2917) without amendment." She provides a list of "persuadables": John McCain (AZ): (202) 224-2235; Fax: (202) 228-2862 Trent Lott (MS): (202) 224-6253; Fax: (202) 224-2262 Kay Bailey Hutchison (TX): 202-224-5922; 202-224-0776 (FAX) Olympia J.
