New Louisiana Law Surrounding Children’s Use of Online Profiles Including Social Media
If Governor John Bel Edwards chooses to sign it, it will take effect in august 2024.
A new bill in Louisiana is targeting children and their use of online accounts. Kids under 18 in the state may soon need their parents’ permission to sign up for social media, gaming and online profiles under a newly passed bill in the state. The measure still needs to be signed by the state’s governor to take effect, and if it does, will follow a trend of similar laws set in Utah and Arkansas that limit adolescents’ unrestricted access to social media. Voting for the restrictions passed unanimously in the Louisiana state house and senate. If Governor John Bel Edwards chooses to sign it, it will take effect in august 2024.
