WASHINGTON, DC – Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement after the Senate passed a broadband privacy CRA. Chairman Blackburn has introduced an identical privacy CRA in the House.
“I applaud the Senate’s vote today to roll back the FCC’s overreach. When the FCC adopted unnecessary and discriminatory rules for ISPs it didn’t improve Americans online privacy, it harmed it by taking the FTC off the job,” said Chairman Blackburn. “Today’s action takes us one step closer to restoring the FTC’s role as America’s expert agency on privacy.”
