Florida’s lower house passes legislation for age verification

Florida age verification

Requirements for pornography sites and others hosting content “harmful to minors” has passed in the House.

Florida’s lower chamber voted unanimously for legislation (HB 3) that pushes publishers to perform reasonable age verification. Right now, most sites simply ask users to press a button verifying they are of age.

No lawmakers argued against the bill on the floor, and the bill passed on a 119-0 vote. 

A similar bill (SB 1792) has been filed in the Senate by Sen. Erin Grall, a Fort Pierce Republican, but has yet to be heard on a Senate Judiciary Committee agenda.
