Child Safe Viewing Act Goes Before Senate

Nov 18, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The Child Safe Viewing Act, a bill requiring federal media regulators to study parent’s access to technologies that are capable of shielding minors from inappropriate content on TV and the Internet, is going before the Senate once again, Multichannel News reports. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., was “hotlined” by Senate leaders on Monday. “Hotlines” are typically reserved for bills expected to be passed quickly. “It’s been hotlined. We are optimistic, but it’s not a done deal,” said Pryor’s spokeswoman Lisa Ackerman.
