Re: [betaNYC] DATA Act controversy

From: Wil L.

When a bill is about to go on the floor for a vote, it is common practice for one side or both sides to present sudden impediments or significant proposed markups to the bill as a means to extract further fundraising from both supporters and opponents of the bill.  The Senate votes for the final version of the bill should have already been whipped as no bill goes on the floor without a predetermined outcome.  Unfortunately we are not yet privy to the outcome which has already been agreed to.

I can't quite make out the politics of this one.  It seems that a lobbying outfit advocating for private sector interests, some of whom presumably want to profit from government data, is complaining loudly on behalf of the "public interest" and casting the Obama administration as the bad guys, setting up impediments to open data.  What gives?
