To prevent and combat the sharing and spreading of

  • Establish an initiative to encourage respectful engagement
and discourse;
  • Develop and share a curriculum to facilitate productive and
honest conversations regarding statewide and national
issues to help people find common ground; and
  • Collaborate with organizations across the state to develop
and update the materials that are used in connection with
the curriculum.
The attorney general is also required to study how the internet and
other media channels, including social media platforms, are used to share
and spread misinformation and disinformation. In addition, the attorney
general is required to review relevant state and federal constitutional
provisions and federal laws and regulations to address preemption and the
intersection of state and federal authority. The attorney general may invite
experts to collaborate or consult with the attorney general or to provide
other assistance to the attorney general in performing the duties specified
in the bill.
The attorney general is required to publish a report of its findings
and to submit the report to the judiciary committees of the senate and the
house of representatives. The report must include recommendations for
state legislation.
For the 2024-2025 state fiscal year, $150,000 is appropriated to the
department of law for the implementation of the bill.
