Will the Neutrality debate last past this year’s telecomm legislation?

There is increased skepticism that any telecom bill will pass this fall, because of the short congressional session in advance of the election and some opposition in the Senate to Sen. Ted Stevens’ (R-Alaska) pending telecom reform bill. That opposition includes Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), who has placed a procedural “hold” on the bill because it lacks Net neutrality provisions.

Read Net neutrality not going away from Telephony Online, Net Neutrality ‘May Well’ Kill Bill, Says Stevens from Broadcasting & Cable, McCain: Telecom Bill Not Dead Yet from the National Journal and Heed the threat to Internet fairness (advocacy for neutrality) from the Philadelphia Inquirer.
