ALERT: New Library Smut Bill Misses Mark

The new 'compromise' library smut bill – Senate Bill 1289 – was released to the public yesterday by its sponsor, Sen. Geoff Schroeder (R-Mountain Home). After close examination by our policy team, we’ve concluded that this new version, while well-intentioned, misses the mark.

Under the newly proposed requirements, parents can seek court action only after the school or library board issues a written statement that they violated the law by making obscene materials available to minors. 

Parents shouldn't have to get permission from school or library officials before taking legal action to protect their children from taxpayer-funded pornography.

The Senate State Affairs Committee needs to fix this bill before they send it to the floor. Send your message asking committee members to improve this bill so that children's innocence is protected!
