Coffman on ISP Customer Privacy Protections
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mike Coffman offered the following statement after voting against S.J. Res. 34, which would have overturned FCC online protections, allowing Internet Service Providers to collect a internet users browsing activity without their permission:
“Today, I voted against (No) S.J. Res. 34, the disapproval of FCC rules relating to ISP customers privacy protections. I believe the privacy of my constituents, and other internet users, is an issue where the government needs to tread very carefully. I do not believe we should permit private corporations to take advantage of our information for their use and profit. The right to privacy is embedded in the fourth amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and as a person who tries to honor our constitution, I chose to oppose the resolution as a reaffirmation in my belief in our founding document".
