‘Enough is enough’: Bipartisan bill sets guardrails for social media

Sen. Katie Britt says she hears about it constantly when she is at home in Alabama – at school track meets, basketball tournaments, and on her regular morning walks with friends. And when she was running for the Senate last year, Ms. Britt says, “parent after parent” came up to her wanting to discuss the way social media was harming their kids.

Ms. Britt also navigates the issue in her own home, as the mother of a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old.

“Enough is enough,” says Ms. Britt, a Republican who last week introduced bipartisan legislation with three other senators – all parents of young children and teenagers – to try to better protect children online. “The time to act is now.”
