New Texas social media anti-censorship bill likely to face legal challenges

“The First Amendment protects speech from being compelled, and the government shouldn’t be in position of picking winners and losers when it comes to speech. It’s not a conservative approach,” said Carl Szabo, a conservative lawyer and vice president at NetChoice, a tech trade group that supported the lawsuit blocking the Florida law.

Szabo said NetChoice is also expecting to back a forthcoming lawsuit against the Texas law.
