Politico: FCC to Take Initiative on Net Neutrality Regulations

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski may be preparing to push forward a proposal for new Net Neutrality regulations as early as next month, according to Politico -- a Washington D.C. insider's news site. Details of the proposal have not yet emerged, but the report notes that the likely timing of FCC action follows the failure of the House Energy and Commerce Committee to reach consensus on the issue ahead of this month's election. The upcoming change to Republican leadership of the committee makes its unlikely that new legislation on the issue will pass.
