At least three states are trying to replace the online privacy rules nixed by Trump

Now that President Donald Trump has scrapped online privacy rules imposed on the likes of AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, some advocates who seek greater protection of consumers' personal information are turning their attention to the states.
