Elizabeth Warren is a KOSA sponsor. KOSA is one of the bad internet bills. Allows state AGs to go after platforms that allow postings by kids. For example, states with anti-LGBTQ laws could go after providers that (say) provide information about LGBTQ issues.

We'll put out poll for the winter conference.
