Internet filtering bill: ‘Some serious concerns about it’ from libraries

Here's a link to my full story at on today's House vote to require public libraries in Idaho to filter Internet service for adults. State Librarian Ann Joslin said at least one Idaho library district held a public hearing on the issue, "and heard very clearly from their adult residents that they did not want filtered Internet access on the adult computers." The bill would no longer let local library boards make that decision. "We certainly have some serious concerns about it," Joslin said. The Idaho Library Association offered to work with the bill's sponsors to make the measure more workable for Idaho libraries, but was rebuffed.
