The Senate just voted to do away with Obama internet privacy regulations.
The vote was close.
From The Hill
The Senate passed a resolution Thursday in a 50-48 party line vote that would dismantle a set of internet privacy rules approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) last year.
The rules, which the FCC passed in a party-line vote in October, require internet service providers such as AT&T and Verizon to obtain customers’ permission before using their personal information for advertising purposes.
Republicans behind the bill viewed it as deregulating, not allowing the FCC to dictate.
