Blatant censorship that targets our school, library, and museum employees by opening them up to unwarranted harassment
Allows anyone to accuse these professionals of obscenity
Montanans across our state trust our teachers and librarians. HB 234 is aimed at a problem that does not exist, as all of these institutions have board approved policies to ensure that the materials they provide are suitable for the public.
The definition of the title of this law is found here. None of these materials are found in public schools or libraries or museums. HB 234 is a blatant attempt at censorship.
It exposes public schools, libraries and museums to frivolous and costly lawsuits when funding is already tight.
