An important internet related bill is pending vote in the full US House
in the near future. The bill relates to companies having equal access to
bandwidth that is provided by telecoms. The bill would allow for
telecoms to charge more for bandwidth on outbound connections. So that
way a company like Google would have to pay more than say, SLUG. Or, if
SLUG wanted people to see its pages faster, SLUG would have to pay

This is bad. Please let your Representative, Senators, and friends who
have Representatives and Senators know that one of the founding
principles of the internet is in danger.
