Privacy SOS

State legislatures across the nation are considering consumer internet privacy laws

In early April 2017, the Trump administration killed Obama-era FCC regulations that would have prevented internet service providers like Comcast from selling sensitive customer information without explicit opt-in consent. In response, legislators in states across the country have introduced bills to fill the gap. 

The ACLU has compiled a list of the most prominent pieces of legislation from a variety of states, including Alaska, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin.
