Network World Fusion reports: "Despite the U.S. House of Representatives' Tuesday approval of an
extension on the current Internet tax moratorium, the Senate Thursday
failed to do the same. The ban expires this Sunday. No additional
measures can be taken to prevent the ban from expiring, since both the
House and Senate will be closed until Tuesday for anthrax testing,
following the contamination of 31 congressional workers who were
exposed to the bacteria by a laced letter."
