Any Kansan who purchases a new computer or smart phone would be blocked from connecting to pornographic websites according to a bill sponsored by state representative Randy Garber, a Sabetha republican.

House Bill 2319 would require phones and computers sold after July 1, 2019 to be equipped with what he calls a “technology protection measure.” Such technology would block or filter “online access to obscene content.”

Garber’s bill is aimed at curbing human trafficking and child pornography but appears to reach farther with the general obscenity filter. Those who want to reach what Garber describes as pornographic sites would have pay a one-time “deactivation fee” of $20. The proceeds from the deactivation fee would go to help human trafficking victims. The bill was introduced Wednesday and so far has no commitee assignments.
