The flood of network neutrality-related activity in Washington continued apace Wednesday. In addition to a Senate Judiciary Committee on the issue, there was the 1 million e-mails SavetheInternet.com said it delivered to Congress in support of strong network neutrality language in a proposed telcom reform bill. Sens Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) were on hand for the announcement, according to the group, to lend their support. The two had co-sponsored a bill with strong network neutrality protection provisions that they hope to amend to the Senate version of telecom reform, which is being amended in the Senate Commerce Committee June 22.
