Kathleen McCook writes Tampa Tribune has a story which states, "A bill requiring Internet filtering software on public library computers died last week in the Florida Legislature for the third year."
"(T)he Legislative Committee of the Florida Library Association ... opposes mandatory Internet filtering so local communities can set their own policies within their own budgets."
In the meantime, "(A) Jacksonville Republican said he will continue pushing the bill ``because some [Florida] counties in the South, as usual, don't want to comply'' with the U.S. Child Internet Protection Act. It requires public libraries that accept federal money to install Internet filters."
