Last week we testified in Tallahassee about Florida’s upcoming online dating bill – HB 411. In our view, this particular bill is ineffective and should be replaced with something much stronger.
Even with its latest modifications, we give it 3 “F” grades:
1. An F for creating a FALSE sense of security.
2. An F for FREEZING the state of technology and effort to do truly effective background checks.
3. An F because it FAVORS ONE COMPANY in the way they do business – true.com.
We know to dial 411 to get useful information, but HB 411 dials-in to mis-information for Florida consumers. We encourage Florida legislators to pass HB 411 over.
