The Limiting Section 230 Immunity to Good Samaritans Act would prevent major online companies from receiving the protections of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act unless they revise their terms of service to include pledges to operate in good faith and details of their content moderation policies, according to Hawley’s office.

Section 230 protects website operators from lawsuits over user-generated content and empowers them to moderate content without losing that legal protection.

Under Hawley’s bill, users who believe the provider is not “operating in good faith” by consistently and fairly applying its content rules could sue for $5,000 and attorneys’ fees.
