Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signs law punishing ‘Big Tech censorship’

Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel at tech industry trade group Net Choice, said the Florida measure violates First Amendment prohibitions against the government “compelling or controlling speech on private websites.”

“By forcing websites to host speech, this bill takes us closer to a state-run internet where the government can cherry pick winners and losers,” he said in a statement issued to The Hill.
