SAVE ONLINE PRIVACY (expired action)

On March 23, Republican Senators voted to undo landmark rules covering your Internet privacy.

U.S. senators voted 50 to 48 to approve a joint resolution that would prevent the Federal Communications Commission’s privacy rules from going into effect. The resolution also would bar the FCC from ever enacting similar consumer protections. Republicans are using the Congressional Review Act (CRA) authority to dismantle the regulations and prohibit the FCC from passing anything similar in the future. 

The resolution (HJ Res 86) is on its way to the House this week.

Call your representative and tell him that your private data is not for sale. Your private online information is yours and yours alone – no cable company or ISP should be able to share or sell your data to the highest bidder without your express consent.
