Tuesday, 1/9/24:

Two potential bills were introduced in the House Judiciary & Rules Committee this afternoon, chaired by Rep. Bruce Skaug of Nampa. Skaug is also the sponsor of the two bills.

RS 30846 would ban depictions of child pornography that are generated by artificial intelligence. With the abilities of AI growing quickly and exponentially, it can create depictions that are indistinguishable from reality. Skaug explained that he had been getting requests from both law enforcement personnel and regular citizens to enshrine this into law.

Rep. Kenny Wroten pointed out that AI technology is only going to continue advancing, which makes this bill a priority. He moved to print the bill. Rep. Joe Alfieri asked about depictions that involve real people superimposed on pornographic images; Skaug said he has an additional bill coming later that addresses that.

RS 30846 passed and will be given a bill number and printed.

Skaug also introduced RS 30847 regarding medical liens. It also passed and will be printed.
