8:38 am
of my control. all we are trying to do is to say let the person whose information it is reassert control that's been taken away by technology. >> i've heard it, too, compared as a civil rights issue. do you see it that way? >> i think it's defining for the 21st century which is it is my information. >> got it. >> thank you. >> chairman wheeler, thank you. we did want to mention we reached out to a major number of providers and they agree that privacy is important but the regulation should be consistent. thank you for your time. >> thanks. they are helping equality take flight. ahead, meet the women in the control of passeng
