CU Letter to the Senate Opposing CRA to Nullify FCC Broadband Privacy Rules

Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization arm of Consumer Reports, writes regarding Senate consideration of S.J.Res.34 sponsored by Senator Flake. This resolution, if passed, would use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to nullify the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) newly-enacted broadband privacy rules that give consumers better control over their data. We strongly oppose passage of this resolution—it would strip consumers of their privacy rights and, as we explain below, leave them with no protections at all. We urge you to vote no on S.J.Res.34.
