Senate Asks FTC to Oversee Internet Safety

Chloe Albanesius – PC Magazine

Members of Congress last week turned their attention to online child predators with the introduction of a bill intended to strengthen public awareness about Internet safety.

The measure, introduced by the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Commerce Committee, calls on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to oversee a government-directed public awareness campaign, directs the Commerce Department to establish an online safety and technology working group, requires schools that receive e-rate funding to include tutorials on the detriments of “cyberbullying” and strengthens child pornography enforcement.
