Congress vote may overturn Internet privacy rules

Congress is set to vote Thursday to nullify the new broadband privacy rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission last year.The rules, which would have required Internet service providers to ask customers’ permission to collect, use and sell personal information, were passed Oct. 27, 2016 by the FCC, then chaired by Democrat Tom Wheeler.But Republicans are poised to overturn the rules entirely, using the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to dismiss regulations recently enacted by the previous administration with a simple majority vote in the Senate.
