Arizona lawmaker pushes porn tax to pay for Trump's border wall
Gail Griffin, a state senator in Arizona, recently proposed legislation that would impose a $20 tax on people who watch internet pornography.
An Arizona legislator has proposed a way to fund a border wall: Charge internet users a tax for viewing pornography.
Arizona Republican state senator Gail Griffin proposed HB 2444
. The legislation would require manufacturers and distributors of internet-connected devices to block people in the state from viewing adult content — unless those users pay a $20 tax.
Revenue from the so-called porn tax would go toward building a border wall between Mexico and the Grand Canyon State, according to the text of the bill.
This isn't the first time state legislators around the country have set their sights on taxing or regulating adult video content. Similar measures have been proposed in other states, including South Carolina
and Rhode Island
