Proposed Law Could Mean No More Free Porn In Rhode Island

quote [ State legislators introduced a bill last week that would require residents to pay a one-time $20 fee to access pornography sites or other "offensive material" online. ]

But it's lockdown straight from Rhode Island

In all seriousness how would this not be a 1st Amendment violation?

Time for all rhode islanders to make sure they are aware of how to use a vpn.

This bill has been proposed in 15 states, I'm curious to see who wrote and is pushing it.

Probably ALEC.

My thought too, but I haven't found any mention of it.

This is essentially a repost:

From the link in that post: The Man Who Wants to Tax Porn Thinks His Past Assault Case Is "Fake News"
Chris Sevier, 40, who sometimes goes by Mark Sevier in court and Chris Severe in communications with state legislators, has a contentious and often intentionally provocative relationship with the American court system that is news to at least some of the bill’s co-sponsors. He once famously tried to legally marry his computer to protest same-sex marriage, and was charged with stalking and harassing both country star John Rich and a 17-year-old girl.

This RI one sounds different since it targets ISPs with filters instead of devices. Also its sponsored by Democrats.

14 more to go. ;)

They're not always up front about this shit either. If i remember correctly they did some of the transgender bathroom bills under the radar as well to stir up the base.

Ah, yes. I was trying to figure out where I had come up with that 15 state figure, that would be it.
