Goal: 5 people to testify, unlimited calls/emails

Talking Points:

  • 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.
