Online equality gets new push
WASHINGTON - Backers of the idea that all Internet traffic should be treated equally are making a fresh attempt to pass "network neutrality" legislation, hoping that a new Democratic majority in Congress will improve its chances.
North Dakota Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan and Maine Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe introduced the bill Tuesday. They were joined by six other Democratic senators, including likely presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois.
