This week, House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans, led by Republican Leader Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), unveiled a comprehensive package of discussion draft bills, the latest phase of an effort to hold Big Tech accountable and curb their abuses of power.  

Reps. Rodgers and Jim Jordan (R-OH) led a solution that would reform Section 230 to prevent Big Tech from censoring conservatives.  

FOX NEWS EXCLUSIVE: “Republican Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Jim Jordan have drafted legislation that would remove Section 230 protections from Big Tech companies and require them to report any content moderation decisions to the Federal Trade Commission, in what sources familiar with the draft measure say would be a “robust” reform of the Communications Decency Act.”

“The draft bill would remove large companies, like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and Microsoft, from Section 230 blanket liability protections and would place them under a proposed “Section 230A,” which would hold companies accountable for content they “amplify, promote or suggest.”
