WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) Ranking Member and Chair of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security, introduced the Kids Online Safety Act.
Here is what advocates and technology groups are saying about the Kids Online Safety Act:
“Senator Blackburn is continuing to help lead the way among Republicans to rein in Big Tech and hold bad actors in Silicon Valley accountable for their harmful and dangerous practices. As senators have learned through various committee hearings, Big Tech will prioritize advertising dollars over kids’ safety any day of the week if they aren’t stopped. Big Tech monopolists should no longer be allowed to target children with harmful or illegal conduct on their platforms. This bill would equip parents with the tools necessary to appropriately supervise and moderate what young, still forming, minds are exposed to on these increasingly dark and massive social media platforms,” said Mike Davis, Founder and President, Internet Accountability Project.
