Schools and libraries that receive federal funds to help pay for their Internet access would be required to add filtering software to their systems under an amendment to an appropriations bill approved by the U.S. Senate. The Senate voted 95-3 Tuesday to require schools and libraries receiving E-rate funds to use technology that blocks access by minors to obscenity, child pornography and "any other material that the library determines to be inappropriate for minors." The E-Rate plan is part of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and is designed to place computers with Internet access into schools and classrooms.
