An Arizona House of Representatives subcommittee is considering a resolution that would declare pornography a "public health crisis" for minors.

According to verbiage in HCR 2009, representatives in the subcommittee would like the State of Arizona to recognize “obscenity, pornography, human trafficking and sex trafficking are detrimental to the health, safety and well-being of minors.”

Within the resolution, legislative members propose that minors should no longer have access to pornography, both on and offline.

Additionally, they have requested increased law enforcement efforts to “protect minors against human trafficking, sex trafficking and prostitution, including targeting, sting operations and prosecution.”

The resolution was proposed by Representatives:

  • Bob Thorpe
  • Joe Linus Barton
  • Noel W. Campbell
  • Todd Clodfelter
  • Regina Cobb
  • Mark Finchem
  • Drew John
  • Jay Lawrence
  • Paul Mosley
  • Becky Nutt
  • Kevin Payne
  • David Stringer
  • Senator Karen Fann
