State bill on internet privacy would result in confusion

PacTech Executive Director Tom Gurr recently weighed in on the negative impact HB 2200 would have on Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and consumers.  In his letter published in the HearaldNet, Gurr says,

“If adopted, House Bill 2200 would create new restrictions that would apply to ISPs, but not content providers who have more access to consumer information. They would be allowed to continue to collect and utilize information as before. This arrangement would leave consumers unsure of what their protections are and when and where they are actually protected. Let’s avoid confusion and provide consumers consistent federal standard of privacy protections, not a state-by-state patchwork.”
