Update: Consumer Bill of Rights

Don't miss this L.A. Times story on the latest contortions in the tale of California's proposed "Consumers' Bill of Rights." It appears that the Consumer Commissioner Carl Wood is unlikely to garner a three-vote majority later this month for sweeping new regulations on the wireless marketplace.

From the story: The 4-year-old effort to protect Californians against questionable practices by telephone companies took a jarring turn Thursday as two state regulators filed alternatives to a proposal for a telecom consumer bill of rights.

California Public Utilities Commission members Susan P. Kennedy and Geoffrey F. Brown filed alternatives that would cost the wireless industry less than the original proposal by Commissioner Carl W. Wood.
