Maryland Kids Code Coalition Applauds Governor, Legislative Leaders, Community Advocates As Landmark Kids Online Safety Bill Signed Into Law


ANNAPOLIS – The Maryland Kids Code Coalition released the following statement as the landmark kids online safety bill its members have tirelessly championed was signed into law:

“Kids and parents in Maryland can rest a little easier tonight knowing that help is on the way to make the internet safer for young people and hold Big Tech companies accountable for their actions. We are immensely grateful to Governor Wes Moore for signing the bill into law, to the bill’s sponsors, Delegates Jared Solomon and C.T. Wilson and Senator Ben Kramer, for their bold and effective leadership, to Speaker Adrienne Jones and President Bill Ferguson for making kids’ online safety a consumer protection priority this year, and we are inspired by the Marylanders from all walks of life – parents, young people, educators, medical professionals, tech experts and more – who joined together to make their voices heard and achieve real change today.”
