Age Verification Bill Tracker

In 2022, Louisiana passed a law requiring the use of age verification on websites that contain a “substantial portion” (33.33%) of adult content. Websites must utilize commercial age verification systems that check a user’s government identification or “public or private transactional data” to confirm that a user is at least 18 years old. Louisiana’s law has sparked a flurry of copycat legislation to be introduced in state houses around the country.

FSC opposes these laws. To learn why, read Ineffective, Unconstitutional, and Dangerous: The Problem with Age Verification Mandates
