GOP Senator Chuck Grassley says his constituents deserve “sustainable” internet marketing, which could help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
“My constituents deserve sustainable internet marketing that is not tied to a single vendor,” Grassley told reporters Thursday in Washington.
“That’s what I’m asking for.
It should be about making sure that our providers, the companies that provide our internet, are going to be able to compete with the big players in the market.””
I think if we can have the right kind of internet marketing — not just to compete, but to provide the same services to our constituents and the same benefits to our communities and our economy and our future — that will help the country be successful,” he said.
The Senate minority leader is one of three Republicans to back a bipartisan bill that would require internet service providers (ISPs) to post cybersecurity information on their websites and other websites for at least 24 hours a day for at no additional cost.

“The rules should be based on science and not politics, and should be put in place to protect consumers from unsafe products,” Warren told reporters in Boston on Thursday.
She continued: “The Internet and online shopping is not a safe space.
And the only way that we are going, at least in the short term, to keep the Internet safe is to put these rules in place.”
Grassley has previously criticized the Trump Administration for its lack of cybersecurity and privacy policies.
“I’ve got a lot of concerns about the way the Trump government has handled the cybersecurity of the United States, and I want to see these rules put in effect so that our companies and our Internet providers can compete with those who do,” he told reporters last year.
“When I saw the President sign off on the cybersecurity and data security rules, I was concerned because I’ve got to be very careful because they’re not safe and they don’t protect consumers,” he added.
“That’s why I’ve asked for a bipartisan vote on cybersecurity, and this is a great way to do that.”
The proposal has been referred to the Senate Commerce Committee.
