"As information becomes more readily available, and mediums of communication multiply, it is important that we protect our children from unwanted material and information," said Rep. Turner.
Any communications to contacts listed on the child protection registry containing material harmful to minors or advertising for products or services that are illegal for minors would be prohibited.
"While we have some barriers in place to protect our children from inappropriate material, this bill address the problem growing communication services such as e-mail and texting present," said Rep. Turner.
Any business that wishes to send adult communications would be required to scrub their contact lists of any contacts listed in the child registry. They would pay a fee of $3 per 100 contacts on the registry. The registry would be maintained by the office of Attorney General Greg Zoeller.
