Republican Texas Governor Abbott joined state Senator Bryan Hughes for a press conference Friday, updating citizens on a new bill meant to protect free speech online.

“I am joining @SenBryanHughes to announce a bill prohibiting social media companies from censoring viewpoints,” Abbott wrote on Twitter. “Too many social media sites silence conservative speech and ideas and trample free speech. It’s un-American, Un-Texan, & soon to be illegal.”

“Conservative speech will not be cancelled in the state of Texas,” Abbott said. “(This bill) would allow any Texan who has been cancelled, censored or de-platformed to file a lawsuit against Twitter, Facebook or any of these other companies.”

The move coincides with a bill proposal in Florida that also addresses social media censorship.

“We’ve seen the power of their censorship over individuals and organizations, including what I believe is clear viewpoint discrimination,’’ Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told the Tampa Bay Times. “Under our proposal, if a technology company de-platforms a candidate for elected office in Florida during the election, a company will face a daily fine of $100,000 until the candidate’s access to the platform is restored again.”
