On Monday, State Sen. Bryan Hughes (R-Mineola), laid out Senate Bill 12 before the Senate State Affairs Committee which he chairs.  Authored by Hughes and several other Senate Republicans, SB 12 seeks to prevent tech from censoring conservatives in Texas.

Hughes gave a powerful example of this censorship based on a pro-life ad that was rejected by Facebook in the clip below. Following the conclusion of testimony on the legislation, SB 12 was left pending in committee.
