SAFE TECH Act (2023)

Issue: Free Expression

Latest Action: Bill text added on March 21, 2023

This attempt at Section 230 reform removes a platform’s liability protection in any circumstance where “the provider or user has accepted payment to make the speech available or, in whole or in part, created or funded the creation of the speech.”

The likely outcome of this is increased censorship as platforms that accept payments will face liability for what’s published on them.

This bill failed last year, but may gain more traction in our current political environment.
