Utah governor signs bill to curb children’s social media use

Industry groups have signaled that they have First Amendment concerns about the rules. NetChoice vice president and general counsel Carl Szabo said the group was evaluating next steps on the Utah law and was talking to other allies in the tech industry.

“This law violates the First Amendment by infringing on adults’ lawful access to constitutionally protected speech while mandating massive data collection and tracking of all Utahns,” Szabo said. In the past, NetChoice has teamed up with industry groups to challenge social media laws in Florida and Texas.
