Skip to comments.Net Neutrality Still on the Agenda
Posted on 12/15/2010 9:45:29 AM PST by abb
The FCC released its agenda for the Dec. 21 public meeting and a vote on proposed network neutrality rules remains on the docket.
"The Commission will consider a Report and Order adopting basic rules of the road to preserve the open Internet as a platform for innovation, investment, competition, and free expression," the sunshine notice says, which is issued a week before the meeting.
But the item is actually second on the agenda after a vote on transitioning voice-only 911 to a broadband-enabled network.
Chairman Julius Genachowski has proposed expanding and clarifying network neutrality rules under Title I authority, which has gotten the qualified support of industry. He has two definite votes against in the two Republican commissioners, but at least one Democratic vote is not a lock, according to an aide,, and could depend on edits and language changes to the draft before the vote.

Genachowski grew up in Great Neck, New York and received his Bachelor of Arts in History (1985) magna cum laude from Columbia College of Columbia University, where he was an Editor of the Columbia Daily Spectator. He received his Juris Doctor (1991) from Harvard Law School, where he was a Notes Editor at the Harvard Law Review when it was headed by Barack Obama, who graduated in the same year. After graduating from Harvard, also magna cum laude, Genachowski clerked for The Honorable Abner J. Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and then for Justices William J. Brennan and David Souter at the U.S. Supreme Court.
