S.J.Res. 34: Senate votes to undo broadband privacy rules that protect user data from their Internet providers

“Republican senators moved Thursday to dismantle landmark internet privacy protections for consumers in the first decisive strike against telecommunications and technology regulations created during the Obama administration, and a harbinger of further deregulation”, wrote Cecilia Kang in her  NYT story, Congress Moves to Strike Internet Privacy Rules From Obama Era (March 23, 2017). “The measure passed in a 50-to-48 vote largely along party lines. The House is expected to mirror the Senate’s action next week.”

The measure is S.J.Res. 34. Created on March 25th, a We the People petition calls for reinstating the privacy of customers of broadband and other telecom services because S.J.Res. 34 is expected to pass in the House and be signed by President Trump. — Joe
