3rd R Reading (Senate)
Libraries, prohibited materials
MINORS – Amends and adds to existing law to prohibit certain materials from being promoted, given, or made available to a minor by a school or public library, to provide for a cause of action, to provide for damages, and to provide for injunctive relief.

RS31627 / H0710

The Children's School and Library Protection Act requires public schools and community libraries to take reasonable steps in restricting children's access to obscene or harmful material. A parent or guardian of a minor child who accesses such material in violation of this policy would be entitled to bring a civil action against the school or library for damages and injunctive relief.

There is no anticipated fiscal impact to the State or general fund because it requires no expenditure of State funds.
