DeSantis signs bill that aims to stop social media censorship on politicians

MIAMI, Fla. – Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill Monday designed to hold Big Tech companies accountable for censoring Floridians online.

The Florida governor signed Senate Bill 7072 into law in the press conference held at Florida International University around 10:30 a.m. The bill gives Floridians the right to sue Big Tech platforms that violate this law.

“Floridians who are de-platformed will be able to sue big tech companies who violate the law,” DeSantis said. “If Big Tech censors enforce rules inconsistently, to discriminate in favor of the dominant Silicon Valley ideology, they will now be held accountable.””

The new law will take effect July 1 and will place impose fines of $250,000 per day on any social media company that de-platforms candidates running for statewide office. It would also impose a $25,000 a day fine on companies that de-platform candidates running for local offices.

DeSantis said any Floridian can block a candidate they don’t want to see online and it’s not up to Big Tech companies to make those decisions for the public.
