Senate Bill 656

I take issue with the vague terminology of the law. It’s far too easy for a sentence or passage to be taken out of context, allowing a parent to label an entire book as sexually explicit. Currently, parents are fully capable of limiting their own children’s media intake. They should not be allowed to steamroll over the rights of other parents to do just that.
