Washington, DC – Internet Association Vice President, State Government Affairs, Dustin Brighton released the following statement on Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner’s veto of the Geolocation Privacy Protection Act (HB 3449):

“The internet industry thanks Governor Rauner for vetoing this harmful, duplicative bill. This legislation would have created costly, and disruptive requirements for any website or app collecting location information in Illinois, without better protecting consumers.
