Reconsider SB1298: Protect Online Freedom and Access to Information

To: Rep. Mathis, Rep. Gutierrez, Gov. Hobbs, Sen. Sundareshan

From: A constituent in Tucson, AZ

April 27

The proposed Senate Bill 1298, introduced on January 30, 2024, which aims to regulate internet content deemed harmful to minors, poses a significant threat to online freedom. The bill's broad definitions and general provisions risk subjective interpretation, potentially leading to unwarranted censorship of diverse content. This could stifle free expression and limit access to a wide range of information. Furthermore, the bill's stringent penalties, including substantial civil liabilities, could place undue burdens on entities. It is crucial to reconsider the bill's current form and ensure it upholds the principles of free speech and fair access to information. The potential for censorship and severe penalties necessitates a thorough review and revision of SB1298.
