An Open Letter

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

From: A constituent in Tucson, AZ

May 24

The proposed SB1125 legislation raises significant concerns regarding online freedom of expression and privacy rights. By imposing burdensome age verification requirements on entities publishing content deemed "harmful to minors," this bill threatens to stifle online discourse and creative expression. The establishment of user IP address blacklists, granting internet service providers authority to comply with requests for address addition or removal, further infringes upon online privacy and autonomy. Violations under this law carry severe penalties, including damages, injunctive relief, and attorney's fees, creating a chilling effect that could discourage content creators and providers from operating openly online. Given the immediate threat SB1125 poses to online freedom and privacy in Arizona, urgent action is needed to address these concerning provisions and protect the rights of internet users and content publishers statewide.
