99BottlesOfBeerInMyF writes “Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.) submitted a rider yesterday to a bill on military and veterans’ construction projects. The rider would, ‘prohibit the FCC from using any appropriated funds to adopt, implement or otherwise litigate any network neutrality based rules, protocols or standards.’ It is co-signed by six other Republican senators. We all knew this was coming after the last election removed most of the vocal supporters of net neutrality and supplanted them with pro-corporate Republicans.”
