ANNAPOLIS – The Maryland Kids Code Coalition released the following statement after the House Economic Matters Committee passed the Maryland Kids Code (HB 603) with a unanimous vote:

“We applaud the House Economic Matters Committee for today’s vote in favor of the Maryland Kids Code, and we’re especially grateful to Chair C.T. Wilson and Delegate Jared Solomon for their leadership. By backing the Kids Code, our legislators are proving that the united voices of youth, parents, and experts outweighs Big Tech’s self-serving narratives. As giant Silicon Valley companies continue to prioritize profit-seeking over keeping kids safe, our resolve grows even stronger to pass this critical legislation to protect Maryland youth from online exploitation and harm.”
