Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) issued the following statement today on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) approval of new consumer privacy rules for internet service providers:

“Consumers demand strong privacy protections online so I commend the FCC for today’s vote to enact new privacy rules.  I believe that no consumer —— regardless of their income —— should be forced to choose between their privacy and staying connected.  I will therefore be reading the new pay-for-privacy rules closely to make sure consumers come out ahead.”
