Big cable tries outlawing municipal broadband in Kansas

http://j.mp/1gxMa33  (Ars Technica)

   "Legislation introduced in the Kansas state legislature by a lobby for
    cable companies would make it almost impossible for cities and towns
    to offer broadband services to residents and would perhaps even outlaw
    public-private partnerships like the one that brought Google Fiber to
    Kansas City.  The Senate bill doesn't list any lawmaker as its
    sponsor, and there's a reason-a Senate employee told us it was
    submitted by John Federico on behalf of the Kansas Cable
    Telecommunications Association, of which he is president."
