Texas state lawmakers appear intent on eradicating pornography with the filing of House Resolution 781.

The legislation would recognize pornography as a “public health hazard.”

It says Texas citizens are “exposed to sexually explicit content through a wide range of media” every day in the state. It also adds that some people who are exposed are not even teenagers.

The bill, filed by State Rep. Valoree Swanson (R-Spring), calls for a push for education and research to deal with the onerous influences of pornography.

Swanson’s bill was filed earlier this month. It has not been voted on yet.
