Folks,

I hope I get this right.  This is how I heard it:

According to Michael Reagan, the Telecommunications Bill that
was recently passed has a provision for financing the Internet
in schools.  And the phone company has the job of collecting it.
He also mentioned that Congress is about to pass legislation
which will prevent the Phone Companies from identifying this
"fee" for what it really is, a tax.  Are elections coming up
soon?

Regards, PapaPaul
