New Arizona obscenity law cracks down on schools, libraries

“School and public libraries in Arizona have been filtering online content for years to protect minors from accessing obscene materials on their computers.

A new state law, which goes into effect Aug. 1, establishes significant consequences for those entities that don’t have a strict policy against such materials. House Bill 2712 specifies the types of material the schools and libraries must block and includes a tough penalty — the state can withhold 10 percent of its funding if the school or library doesn’t comply.”
