RICHMOND, Va. — A new proposal targeting and taxing the consumption of adult content is now before Virginia lawmakers.

Virginia House Bill 1592, introduced two weeks ago, would lock all pornographic sites from user devices — from desktops to smartphones — until the state is paid a digital access fee of $20

The bill also requires distributors of adult content to remit an identical fee of the same amount for each production, and further makes it a crime to sell products that don’t include software that would render adult content inaccessible.
