Tester Slams Congress for Allowing Internet Providers to Collect and Sell Montanans' Web Browsing History and Personal Information
Senator Jon Tester today slammed Congress for passing legislation that undermines Montanans' right to privacy and allows internet service providers to collect and sell personal data and web browsing history to private companies.
Tester warned members of Congress during a speech on the Senate floor that their vote to pass this legislation violates civil liberties and presents the latest threat to Montanans' right to privacy. President Trump signed this bill, Senate Joint Resolution 34, into law late Monday night.
"This bill allows companies to sell your data, snoop through your search history, and track the sites you visit," Tester said on the Senate Floor.
