Osmek opposes privacy amendment and then blocks constituents & peer
Sen. David Osmek (R – 33) was the lone opposition of an internet privacy amendment that passed the Minnesota Senate 66-1 after the US House and US Senate voted to repeal the Obama administration internet privacy protections.
“We should be outraged at the invasion that’s being allowed on our most intimate means of communication,” said Senator Limmer (R) of Maple Grove, a longstanding privacy advocate. “This is an amendment that so urgently needs to be addressed.”
Once the amendment cleared this procedural hurdle, it was overwhelmingly added to the bill on a 66-1 vote. The lone critic, Sen. David Osmek, said Latz’s amendment needed more study and review before being adopted.
