US lawmakers roll back privacy rules for internet carriersUS lawmakers voted Tuesday to roll back rules that would block internet service providers from selling user data to third parties, following a heated debate over privacy protections. The House of Representatives voted 215-205 to overturn the Federal Communications Commission rule, following last week’s 50-48 vote in the Senate. The move followed a fierce debate over digital privacy protections over the rule that would have required service providers to get permission before selling customer data to third parties.
