HB 72 (Device Filter Amendments)

Libertas Institute opposes this bill.

This bill mandates that new tablets and smartphones sold to Utahns come with the filters turned on. If a device is sold in the state and the filters are not turned on, the manufacturers will be held liable.

Libertas Institute opposes this bill. While well intentioned, the bill is a heavy handed one-size-fits-all style of regulatory burden. We believe that there are less restrictive measures that could be taken and the government should not be in the business of filtering content on devices.
