Senate Judiciary moves ahead with social media ban for most children

Erin Grall's legislation still doesn't allow parents to opt in on platforms, despite concerns from the Governor.

Legislation barring most children in Florida from social media advanced in the Florida Senate. But it still contains no exceptions for children logging on with parental consent, something Gov. Ron DeSantis has questioned.

Sen. Erin Grall, a Fort Pierce Republican, said Big Tech’s current practices pose too great a threat against children to ignore.

“If we as a government have identified this harm, that is beyond the magnitude of really any one person to get in the middle of and control,” Grall said.
