ANNAPOLIS – The Maryland Kids Code Coalition released the following statement after the Senate Finance Committee passed the Maryland Kids Code (SB 571) with a 7-3 vote:

“We applaud Chair Pam Beidle and the Senate Finance Committee for today’s vote in favor of the Maryland Kids Code, and we’re especially grateful to Senator Ben Kramer for his leadership. By supporting the Kids Code, our legislators are showing that the voices of youth advocates, grieving parents, and medical and educational professionals are louder and more powerful than the Big Tech lobby’s transparent spin. With harm to kids and teens piling up as Big Tech companies choose profiteering over basic corporate responsibility, exposing young people to exploitation and abuse, we will continue to advocate fiercely for this much-needed legislation.”
