NetChoice Opposition to Texas SB 12: Censorship of User Expression Download

NetChoice opposes Texas SB 12 because its mandates on social media platforms:

Expose social media platforms to lawsuits for removing harmful content.

Make it more difficult for social media platforms to block SPAM messages

Violate conservative principles of limited government and free markets.

Violate the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

SB 12 will penalize social media platforms for moderating harmful content, generating unintended consequences we describe in the attached testimony.
