Online Freedom of Speech Act Vote Tomorrow

The House will vote tomorrow on HR 1606 – The Online Freedom of Speech Act, a measure uniting Left and Right in the blogosphere. It got majority support last go-round but was thwarted by procedural tricks.

Markos Moulitsas Zuniga notes that the NYT calls it “Internet Campaign Loophole” even though “this loophole has existed for several years and still hasn’t been exploited.”

Mike Krempasky says, “Seriously folks – it’s gameday. Get on the horn.”
