Save Access Responds to House Vote on COPE

Save Access, a national coalition of community media organizations and individuals, had this to say about yesterday's 321-101 vote that passed the Communications, Opportunity, Protection and Enhancement (COPE) Act of 2006 out of the House of Representatives:

HR 5252-COPE passes by a margin of 321-101

"Nearly all Republicans and a majority of the Democrats voted for the Resolution and the interests of their corporate patrons, the telephone companies. The net neutrality amendment was defeated and was excluded from this bill. The final resolution with the attached amendments is not just bad – it's ridiculously bad. We can only hope the Senate will act with greater integrity, truthfulness and foresight." – Save Access
