south-carolina-bill-that-would-limit-pornA newly proposed South Carolina bill is now stirring controversy across the state.

The bill would essentially limit South Carolinian’s ability to access porn on a new computer (unless a fee is paid to have the restrictions removed for each computer).

South Carolina State Representative Bill Chumley pre-filed a bill this month that would require sellers to install digital blocking capabilities on computers and other devices that access the internet to prevent the viewing of pornographic material.

It would also limit access to any online hub that facilities prostitution and would require manufacturers or sellers to block any websites that facilitate human trafficking related activities.

Both sellers and buyers would be able to pay a fee to get around the limitation. The bill would fine manufacturers that sell a device without the blocking system, but they could opt out by paying $20 per device sold. Buyers could also verify their age and pay $20 to remove the filter.

All of the fees collected would go toward the South Carolina Attorney General Office’s human trafficking task force.

Chumley’s bill is now moving on to the House Judiciary Committee.

What do you think about the new bill?
