The Senate voted Thursday to approve a measure that could make it easier for broadband providers to sell private information about you to marketers.

In a 50-48 vote, lawmakers approved a joint resolution from Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona, that uses the Congressional Review Act to prevent privacy rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission last year from taking effect.

The resolution also would prevent the FCC from enacting similar consumer protections in the future. The measure must now be voted on in the House of Representatives.
