Both the California ISP Association (www.cispa.org) and the American ISP
Association (www.aispa.org) are active on this issue. You can
contact/join one of these to coordinate.
CISPA is a California group only in the sense that there was a critical
mass of ISPs getting steamrolled by SBC Pacific Bell in California that
decided they had to work together. Cooperation with ISPs outside Ca. are
absolutely welcome. CISPA has a mailing list for members that is active
on a daily basis lately with political issues. It's still news to me that
Dingell is up for re-election.
