Congress is trying to strip away your online privacy rights.
Internet service provider knows a lot about you: the webpages you visit, the things you purchase, the people you talk to, and more. Last year, the federal government updated rules to ensure that the companies that act as gatekeepers to the Internet can’t compromise your privacy to make a profit. Those rules are set to go into effect this year.
Now some members of Congress are trying to change that.
Using a little-known tool called a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution, some lawmakers want to not only repeal your privacy protections but also effectively prohibit the FCC from creating similar rules in the future.
That could leave consumers without a federal agency to protect online privacy rights.
You need to let your representatives in Congress know that they can’t put ISPs’ demands ahead of their constituents’ privacy.
Please call your lawmakers today and tell them to oppose the CRA resolution to repeal the FCC’s privacy rules.
