Telecommunications Fair Competition Enforcement Act of 2001
  Senator Holling's bill (S.1364) is expected to be introduced this spring. It calls for a "Structural Separation" of the Bell companies - the intent is to separate the Bell companies wholesale and retail businesses and eliminate their conflicted interest in harming competition. We call it "Divestiture II" or Breaking up the Bells.
