FSC Analyzes HR 5528 – “The Pornography Jurisdiction Limitation Act of 2006”

June 17, 2006 – The Free Speech Coalition staff has prepared a point-by-point analysis of H.R. 5528, the so-called “Por­nography Jurisdiction Limitation Act of 2006,” which was introduced in the House on June 6, 2006, by Representative Chris Cannon (R-Utah), and is now pending before the House Judiciary Committee.

The legislation, if passed into law, would eliminate the jurisdiction of the federal courts to hear and decide First Amendment (“freedom of expression”) claims concerning any “State Pornography Law.”  FSC attorney Reed Lee and Legislative Affairs Director Kat Sunlove have provided both bullet point and in-depth analysis of the bill, the text of which is also available for our members.

The Free Speech Coalition will closely monitor this bill, which, according to Reed Lee, "Would lead to the Balkanization of expression in the United States at a time when both the law and society seem to be moving toward considerable uniformity nationwide."

Analysis of other bills is available HERE.
