WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement of support for Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) Online Content Policy Modernization Act Thursday, after the consideration of the bill was postponed.

“I don’t like involving government in industry, particularly with regard to an industry that has grown up in freedom as opposed to in regulatory captivity,” Sen. Lee said. “But Facebook and Twitter have claimed political neutrality while practicing political partisanship for far too long. That is why I would have voted for Senator Graham’s legislation to move through the Committee. He has worked with me to iron out some issues in his bill, and I trust he will continue to work with me to iron out a few others in the coming Congress. I look forward to engaging in that effort.”
