Proposed laws would protect youth online
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – California lawmakers are being asked to approve landmark legislation aimed at protecting youth online.

The two bills are entitled the Protecting Youth from Social Media Addiction Act and the California Children’s Data Privacy Act.

Backers say they would limit the harms associated with social media addiction and provide more robust protections for kids’ data privacy.

Attorney General Rob Bonta has endorsed both bills saying "Social media companies have shown us time and time again that for profits, they are willing to harness addictive content to target a vulnerable population: our children.”
