Senate Bill 656

I support the requirement that material that addresses or contains sexual subject matter be reviewed and identified, and that parents have access to review it as well. And that parents be allowed to decline having such material presented to their children, or generally available to children with no access filter.

The subject of sexuality and sexual expression is an intimate knowledge that needs to be managed by the parent who has the responsibility for the intimate health and welfare of their child and an understanding of the child’s needs and capabilities.
