Legislators move closer to imposing speech requirements on social media companies

“This bill abandons conservative values, violates the First Amendment, and would force websites to host anti-Semitic, racist and hateful content,” said Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel at NetChoice, a technology advocacy organization. “SB 7072 is unconstitutional as it compels private businesses to host speech in a blatant violation of the First Amendment. Creating a new Fairness Doctrine for the internet will only make it harder for conservatives to share their news and views online.”
