The Senate Commerce, Consumer Protection, Energy and the Environment Committee this week advanced SB 336, sponsored by Sen. Rick Brattin (R-Harrisonville), that would require internet service providers to install authentication password software to protect children from accessing pornography online. Should the bill pass, adult users would have to enter a password in order to access such content. The hope is that this would prevent children from accidentally stumbling on graphic materials that are inappropriate for children. The bill now moves to the full Missouri Senate for further consideration.
