Schumer urges Trump to veto anti-privacy internet bill
NYPOST by Mark Moore
Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday urged President Trump to veto a bill that removes privacy protections on the internet that will make users’ sensitive information available to the “highest bidder.”
“If President Trump signs this resolution into law consumers will be stripped of critical privacy protections in a New York minute,” Schumer said.
The House and Senate passed the measure that removes Obama-era protections against internet service providers from selling information like a person’s browser history, location data and app use without consent.
The bill is expected to land on Trump’s desk this week and the president has said he would sign it.
