Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – July 5th, 2020

 

ERA of Self Regulation is Over

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – What the digital mob chooses to attack changes with the news cycle. As we have seen, this heavily influences how Big Tech polices content on their platforms.

For years, tech companies have waged a very public war against platform users who speak out against the popular narrative, abusing the “Section 230” protections Congress created to protect growing tech firms and encourage innovation.

The dynamic between users and platforms has changed, though—and now, Congress must change the law that guides that dynamic.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and John Kennedy (R-La.), House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) led 207 Members of Congress in filing an amicus brief to stand up for Louisiana’s pro-life law before the U.S. Supreme Court that would require all abortion providers to have admitting privileges at local hospitals when emergencies arise.

“States reserve the right to protect mothers and their children with high standards for health care providers—and abortionists remain subject to such high standards. I hope the Supreme Court will issue a ruling that safeguards women’s health and that is consistent with the Constitution’s guarantee for states’ rights,” Senator Blackburn stated.
