We respectfully ask that you not advance SB 187, because it:

  • Violates the First Amendment of the US Constitution
  • Would expose social media platforms to lawsuits for removing harmful content
  • Would make it far more difficult to block SPAM messages
  • Violates conservative principles of limited government and free markets.

Attached we explain why SB 187 would be set aside for violating the First Amendment.

Then, we describe the unintended but likely consequences if the law were to survive constitutional challenges.
