Report: Net neutrality legislation returning

Rep. Edward Markey (D-Ma.) is poised to re-introduce a Net neutrality measure in Congress, according to a story in GovExec.com. The story says Markey wants to push net neutrality back into the spotlight, but if anything, Markey may be hitching a ride. Net neutrality is moving quickly back toward the center of the political stage, fueled by controversies such as Comcast's delaying of peer-to-peer traffic and AT&T's alleged censorship of online content.

Earlier attempts at Net neutrality legislation, including a Markey-sponsored bill in 2006, failed, some might say after broadband carrier lobbying convinced Congress the issue wasn't worth addressing. Stay tuned to hear what Markey might have to say about new legislation.
