AUGUSTA, Maine - A Maine Democrat says her bill would ban internet service providers from selling their customers' online browsing data to third parties without explicit consent.
Roughly a dozen states have taken up measures in the last two months to enhance internet privacy laws following the defeat of protections proposed on the federal level.
Sen. Shenna Bellows says her bill applies to companies providing broadband internet to customers within the state. Republican Sens. Garrett Mason and David Woodsome are co-sponsors.
