NPR's Larry Abramson reports on the bill that comes up for debate in the House today, known as Tauzin-Dingell. The measure would lift some regulations on the former Bell operating companies that own most of the local connections to consumers' telephones. Opponents say Tauzin-Dingell would give the Bells an unfair advantage.
