New legislation to require pornography to carry warning label
New legislation at the State Capitol would require any pornography distributed in Utah to carry a warning label.
Republican Representative Brady Brammer says his bill is not an attempt to stop pornographic products from being purchased or viewed.
The warning label must describe potential negative impacts on youth involving brain and emotional development.
For videos, the label must be up for at least 15 seconds, and on printed publications, it must be easily spotted.
Back in 2016, the Utah Legislature was the first in the country to pass a resolution to declare pornography a "public health crisis."
Brammer has no sympathy for entertainment companies who protest that his bill is a violation of free speech.
