[UTTER MORONS] $20 porn-unblocking fee could hit Internet users if
state bill becomes law


        State legislation pending in Rhode Island would force Internet
        service providers to block "sexual content" by default and
        charge a one-time fee of $20 to any Internet user who wants to
        view porn or other "offensive material" online.  ISPs would
        have to hand the money they collect over to the state so it
        can "help fund the operations of the council on human
        trafficking."  The bill was introduced on Thursday by
        Democratic state Senators Frank Ciccone and Hanna Gallo and is
        titled "An Act Relating to Public Utilities and
        Carriers--Internet Digital Blocking."
