Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is attempting to pull a fast in the House of Representatives. He is pushing though an amendment to the Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act (H.R. 4078) that would give Obama (or any president) the ability to put in place regulations that would impact the Internet. The amendment is amendment #58.
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has sent around a “Dear Colleague” (see below) calling attention to this behind-the-curtains attempt at a power grab by the Obama administration. Please contact you Congressman and tell them to keep the Internet out of the government’s hands and oppose amendment #58 to H.R. 4078.
