Minnesota Kids Code Hearing Scheduled for Next Tuesday

Lawmakers Respond to Calls for Action from Young People, Parent Advocates

ST. PAUL – The Minnesota Kids Code (HF 2257) will receive a hearing next week in the House Judiciary Finance and Civil Law Committee next Tuesday, reflecting ongoing momentum after last week’s widely-attended rally.

Affected parents and youth, as well as legal experts, are expected to keep making the case for the Kids Code’s safety-by-design and privacy-by-default approach at next Tuesday’s hearing, articulating the need for immediate action as Big Tech companies continue to endanger children’s and teens’ health and wellbeing online.
