An Open Letter

To: Rep. Lee, Sen. Casey, Sen. Fetterman

From: A verified voter in Penn Hills, PA

June 4

Congress should not repeal or weaken Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Section 230 has been vital in fostering the growth and innovation of the internet as we know it today. It establishes the principle that online platforms are not liable for user-generated content, enabling the free exchange of information and ideas. Eliminating these protections would cripple the ability of websites to host public commentary and open discourse. It would impose a massive "litigation tax" on services that allow user content, putting countless online platforms at risk. While proponents frame this as reining in Big Tech, Section 230 shields websites and services of all sizes, including small businesses, startups, blogs, and community forums. Revoking these protections would lead to a chilling effect on free speech online and severely diminish the vibrancy of the internet. Congress should preserve Section 230 to uphold American values of innovation and free expression in the digital age.
