Great work Governor!

As many politicians & candidates complain about Social Media Censorship, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has stepped up and presented a bold plan to tackle this big issue.

The DeSantis Social Media Censorship Crackdown Plan includes the following actions:

        Mandatory opt-outs from big tech’s content filters.

        A private right of action for Floridian citizens against tech companies that violate this condition.

        Fines of $100,000 per day levied on tech companies that suspend candidates for elected office in Florida from their platforms.

        Daily fines for any tech company “that uses their content and user-related algorithms to suppress or prioritize the access of any content related to a political candidate or cause on the ballot.”

        Greater transparency requirements.

        Disclosure requirements enforced by Florida’s election authorities for tech companies that favor one candidate over another.

        Power for the Florida attorney general to bring cases against tech companies that violate these conditions under the state’s Unfair and Deceptive Practices Act.
