State Rep. Michelle Udall, R-Mesa, introduced a measure that declares the crisis and states porn “perpetuates a sexually toxic environment that damages all areas of our society.”

“Like the tobacco industry, the pornography industry has created a public health crisis,” Udall told lawmakers. “Pornography is used pervasively, even by minors.”

Udall’s proposal, House Concurrent Resolution 2009, is largely symbolic and has no legal effect, but supporters say they hope it opens the door to new restrictions on porn.
