Republican state Sen. Rich Crandall has proposed a law to require cellphone companies to offer Arizona parents access to their minor children’s texts.
"If I have a 13-year-old being harassed via text, I can’t call and get those texts," Crandall said. "This bill will allow me to at least pay to see the text messages for my children." Under the bill, phone companies could charge a fee for that service.
While it’s been proposed in at least one other state, Arizona would be the first state to make a law to this effect. What do you think, guys? Invasion of privacy or useful service for parents to have?
