House GOP announces bills to guard against government censorship

Thursday, February 23, 2023 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) – House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., on Thursday announced a markup of legislation to protect free speech from government censorship.

The proposal includes two bills, among them the Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act, which aims to restrict federal employees from using their positions to pressure private entities to censor. Comer introduced the measure to expand on the Hatch Act’s restrictions on government employees engaging in political activities.

“The bill prohibits agency employees from using their authority to influence or coerce a private sector platform to censor—including to remove, suppress, restrict, or add disclaimers or alerts to—any lawful speech posted on its platform by a person or entity,” the markup reads. “It provides an exception for legitimate law enforcement activities reported to Congress for review.” [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
