Net Neutrality Language Will Be Stronger In Senate Bill: Report

As the drumbeat for — and against — net neutrality grows louder, Ted Hearn is reporting that Senate Commerce Chairman Ted Stevens, (R-Alaska), will change the language in his proposed telecommunications bill to accomodate net neutrality concerns. An unidentified committee source told Hearn it’s “highly likely” the language will be changed. U,.s. Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), the committee’s top-ranking minority member, has been pressuring Stevens to strengthen the bill’s net neutrality aspects and included stronger language in his draft bill. A committee hearing is set for Tuesday but the net neutrality revisions may not happen until later in the week; the committee vote is planned for June 20.
