SAN ANTONIO – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz was in San Antonio on Thursday to discuss the importance of Congress passing the Kids Online Safety Act.

Cruz held a news conference with three parents whose children committed suicide due to cyberbullying. Read HereREAD MORE
Parents and government officials have crossed political lines to join together to fight against online attacks aimed at children. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, who was in San Antonio for a Chamber of Commerce luncheon Thursday, said it’s urgent to get the Kids Online Safety Act before President Joe Biden. The KOSA legislation, introduced by Sens. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., would require tech and social media companies to default to the most stringent privacy and safety settings, rather than having youth and parents navigate often complicated platforms. “I’m confident we’re going to pass this on the Senate floor. We’re going to pass it on the House (floor). And it’s going to be signed into law,” Cruz said. “I’m not going to suggest to you that KOSA is going to solve everything; we’re going to have a lot more work to do protecting our kids. … But it is a serious and meaningful step forward.” Read HereREAD MORE
Sen. Ted Cruz met with with parents of children who died by suicide after they experienced online bullying and harassment. He stood with them at a press conference on Thursday to discuss the progress of the Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA).

It was unanimously voted out of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation in late July, putting it one step closer to a full Senate vote. Cruz chairs the committee and supports the bill. Read HereREAD MORE
