May 22, 2023 Group Watch: News & Views from the State House

The House was successful in passing a bill seeking to restrict minors; access to digital pornographic content last week. The Protection of Minors from Unfiltered Devices Act, which requires makers of phones, tablets and other electronic devices to turn on filters that block porn when activated in the state, has been in the works for years but never had the votes before. 

Another earlier House-passed bill got some tweaks last week.  The legislation banning Chinese citizens from buying property in Alabama was deemed too broad and got a rewrite by the Senate Agriculture, Forestry, and Conservation Committee before passing the full Senate.
