Net Neutrality

For those that are living under a rock, there’s legislation winding its way through both the House and Senate that could potentially change how we interact with the Internet. The issue is commonly referred to as “network neutrality” or “net neutrality”. You can find a lot of information at Save The Internet.

The current and most pressing action is happening in the Senate Commerce Committee. Our own Kay Bailey Hutchison is a member of this committee and will have a say in where this issue heads out of the committee. If you support Net Neutrality, then you want to contact Sen. Hutchison via phone, fax or e-mail and let her know that you’d like her to support the Snowe/Dorgan amendment (S. 2917).

Here’s her contact information:

DC Office – 202-224-5922; 202-224-0776 (FAX)
Austin Office – 512-916-5834; 512-916-5839 (FAX)

You need to contact her office in the next few days as it’s expected to be taken up either tomorrow or Wednesday.

If you’d like to read more on the issue, here are several articles:
