Lt. Governor Championing Social Media Parental Notification Act
Ohio Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted is leading a new proposal that would require certain online companies to get parental consent before allowing kids under 16 to use their platforms.
The Social Media Parental Notification Act is part of Governor Mike DeWine’s 2023-24 Executive Budget.
If the proposal is signed into law, companies would need to create a parental consent splash page for those under 16 and get verifiable parental consent.
Companies would then need to send written consent confirmation to parents.
