Congress took the first step Thursday to nullifying the new broadband privacy rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission last year. The rules, which would have required Internet service providers to ask customers' permission to collect, use and sell personal information, were passed Oct. 27, 2016 by the FCC, then chaired by Democrat Tom Wheeler.

The Senate voted 50-48 Thursday to overturn the rules, now the House must vote and, if its members pass the resolution, forward it onto President Trump.
