Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., introduced a bill that would require companies to obtain user permission before sharing data with advertisers, Axios reports.

Blackburn's bill would not only apply to ISPs but also to web companies, such as Facebook and Google.

"We knew at some point we needed to move forward with what a new structure would be — and I felt the timing was appropriate," Blackburn said.
