WASHINGTON -- One of the major sticking points over legislation easing phone companies' entry into the video market involves a policy that is little understood by some lawmakers. It's a policy that means different things to different people but has a passionate appeal.
It's called "net neutrality," and the debate over it went into high gear Thursday during a House Commerce Committee legislative hearing. Arguing the issues were executives from network companies like Verizon, Internet goods movers like Amazon and lawmakers from both parties. The legislation is being pushed by committee chairman Joe Barton, R-Texas.
