Wyoming Senators Voted To Let ISPs Sell Your Private Information
The US Senate just voted 50-48 to do away with broadband privacy rules, letting Internet Service Providers, or ISPs, and telecoms sell your sensitive internet information
Your ISP can collect and sell your data without your consent for advertising and marketing purposes.
- Your precise geolocation
- Financial information
- Health information
- Information about your children
- Web browsing history
The Republican bill S.J.Res. 34 blocks a regulation that they see as executive overreach, but privacy advocates claim it allows companies to sell your private Internet and search history without your permission.
This resolution passed in the Senate on March 23, 2017 and goes to the House next for consideration. If passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and signed by the President, it becomes a law.
Wyoming Senators John Barrasso, a co-sponsor and Mike Enzi both voted to let ISPs sell your private information without your consent. Which side are you on?
