William Owens on Technology

Republican CO Governor


More restrictions on Internet crime & porn

We must take steps to increase the penalties for those who engage in identity theft. Crucial to our prosperity are the economic opportunities created by on-line commerce and the Internet. Our citizens must feel safe that they can conduct business on-line without people stealing personal information.

I believe we must also do more to protect our children from hate, pornography and violence on the Internet. It seems clear to me that any computer used by a child in a Colorado public school or public library should include filtering software to limit our children’s access to hate, pornography and violence on these publicly-funded computers.Our libraries don’t use taxpayer funds to buy hate magazines or pornographic magazines - they shouldn’t use taxpayer funds to allow access to the same material on-line.
