The bill as passed by the Senate would create a registry of electronic contact points for children and prevent anyone wishing to send messages advertising content that is illegal for a minor to purchase, view, possess, participate in or receive from sending to a registered contact point. The system would be funded by charging senders a fee for scrubbing their address lists. The bill provides for both criminal and civil penalties. The bill was modified in the House committee to replace the registry with a requirement that messages advertising such things as pornography, gambling and prostitution must contain "ADV:ADLT" in the subject line.
