Rep. Jim Beckett's (R - Bruce) AT&T deregulation bill passes committee; headed to House floor

Well, despite the fact that all three Public Service Commissioners are concerned about it, despite the fact that it appears to be unconstitutional, despite the fact that state media has picked up on the monetary connections between author Rep. Jim Beckett (R - Bruce) and AT&T, and despite the fact that I've uncovered AT&T buying meals and gifts for Rep. Beckett and his wife, HB 825 passed the Public Utilities committee in the House today.  It's headed to the House floor now, and will likely be taken up next week.

Should be an interesting floor debate.
