Summary:
Government-owned computers; restrictions on access to materials with sexually explicit content. Prohibits the use of computers owned or leased by agencies of the Commonwealth to access, download, print or store any information infrastructure (Internet, etc.) files or services having "sexually explicit content" as that term is defined in the bill. An exception is made for bona fide, agency-approved research projects or other agency-approved undertakings. Approvals for such exceptions must be given in writing by agency heads, and any such approvals will be available to the public under the provisions of the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. Agencies are required to immediately furnish all current employees copies of this law's provisions, and to furnish all new employees copies of this law concurrent with authorizing such employees to use agency computers.
