Week ahead: House to vote on controversial online sex trafficking bill
TechFreedom, Engine, FreedomWorks, Citizens Outreach, R Street Institute and Committee for Justice sent a joint letter to Senate leaders on Friday, supporting the House version of sex-trafficking legislation, FOSTA, but rejecting the provisions in the Senate bill.
“The Senate legislation would harm, not help, sex trafficking victims, whereas the House bill would not raise the same significant concerns. Thus, the two bills cannot simply be merged,” they wrote to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)
The letter also said lawmakers are moving too quickly to a vote and called for more time to debate the changes.
