Minnesota Senate Votes To Bar Selling ISP Data

Hooray for Minnesota! At least a few legislators possess Common Sense.

The Minnesota Senate on Wednesday voted to bar internet service providers from selling their users’ personal data without express written consent. The move was a reaction to a Tuesday vote in Congress to lift a ban on that practice imposed in 2016 by the Federal Communication Commission. (A brief history of the problem can be found here.)
