Texas Senate Passes Bill That Would Punish Social Media Companies For Alleged Political Censorship

Critics of the bill argue it infringes on the First Amendment rights of social media providers themselves. Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel of the trade group Net Choice, was part of the suit that blocked the Florida law.

“There are a lot of lawmakers who will have egg on their faces if they back this type of legislation, either because it is so clearly unconstitutional in violation of the First Amendment, or because it is their constituents who will be exposed to lawful but awful content,” Szabo told Houston public Media in July.
