ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

The COLLUDE Act is Senator Schmitt’s continuation of his work as Attorney General of Missouri to expose the “censorship enterprise” between Big Tech and the federal government  

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt introduced the Curtailing Online Limitations that Lead Unconstitutionally to Democracy’s Erosion (COLLUDE) Act, in order to halt the collusion between big tech and the federal government which has led to censoring Americans’ speech:

“Big Tech overlords have no business acting as censors on behalf of the federal government, and accountability is coming for those who sought to silence those whom they disagreed with. My COLLUDE Act puts Section 230 protections on the line for large tech companies who censor free speech at the behest of the federal government,” said Senator Eric Schmitt. “Freedom of speech is a foundational aspect of our republic and must be jealously guarded. I exposed this collusion when I was Missouri’s Attorney General, and now as a U.S. Senator, I’m taking the first action to put a stop to the collusion and censorship.”
