No more porn on phones and tablets?

A new law being pushed by conservative lawmakers in Utah could end the viewing of porn on phones and tablets.

Some are saying it is unconstitutional, but some parents are praising it.

The law would put a filter on phones and tablets that blocks porn sites. Parents can turn off the filter if they choose.

Parents are concerned that because of the pandemic, children are spending more of their time online and have the potential to be exposed to adult sites.

If the bill passes, phone and tablet manufacturers could face penalties ranging from $10 to $500 if the filters are not installed on their devices.

But manufacturers are worried because that is a hard task to focus on a single state. Lobbyists have successfully made a provision to the bill saying that it could not be enforced unless five other states have instituted the same law.

The controversial bill is being questioned on free speech rights and data tracking from big tech.

Governor, Spencer Cox has until March 25th to sign the legislation.
