Summary as introduced:
Technology; required protection measures; public libraries; exception. Requires the library board or governing body of a library that receives state funding for any purpose to include in its acceptable use policy for the Internet provisions requiring the selection, installation, and activation on those computers that have Internet access a technology protection measure, as selected by the Library of Virginia, to filter or block Internet access through such computers to child pornography as set out in 18.2-374.1:1, obscenity as defined in 18.2-372, and, with respect to minors, materials deemed harmful to juveniles as defined in 18.2-390.
