Oh, You Mean The Lobbyists Don't Get To Write All The Laws?
from the shocker! dept
There have been a number of reports about how lobbyists are more or less writing the anti-muni broadband laws for many different states. However, when the politicians actually decide to write the laws themselves, the lobbyists freak out. Apparently, a Verizon lobbyist in West Virginia stormed out of a Senate meeting furiously after he discovered that pro-muni legislation was being introduced that wasn't first reviewed (and rewritten) by telco lobbyists. What will those crazy politicians think of next?
