Tennessee Sen. Bill Hagerty (R) is working to ensure Big Tech companies uphold free speech for everyone. According to reports, Hagerty introduced a bill last week that would require firms like Facebook and YouTube to allow content on their platforms even if it breaks their rules.

The proposal would treat companies with 100 million users or more like common carriers, which would be similar to how public utility companies are treated. It also would call for more transparency on content moderation and would repeal Section 230, which gives Big Tech legal immunity.

Hagerty said he wants reasonable and non-discriminatory access for all users.
