Arizona law blocks Internet pornography in schools and libraries
Sponsored by Representative Steve Court and signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer, HB2712 mandates that public access computers in Arizona schools and libraries deploy and enforce a technology protection measure preventing minors from gaining access to materials deemed to be pornography, harmful to minors, or obscene. Under the law, schools and libraries must block questionable websites from minors and the general public, and they must publicize their policy to the public. Violators of the law lose 10 percent of state funding; schools and libraries have 60 days to comply with law after first notification of a violation.
