This is monstrous-- 15 year *minimum* for teenagers involved in sexting. "Involved" includes encouraging another teen to sext. The picture doesn't even have to be sent.

Name of bill: "Protecting Against Child Exploitation Act of 2017"

Here's the roll call list in case you have a Representative you'd like to praise or punish.

Please call your Senators about this.

You are, of course, under no obligation to read comments at the link, but I'm an occasional comment reader at Reason, and this is the first time I've seen them turn against Republicans in general.

I have phoned my Senators. Both phone lines were open. If you need contact information for your Senators, here it is.

Reason is the nearest thing to a major news organization which has covered the story. Should you have a habit of hating on libertarians, please remember this-- there's so much going wrong that one point of view and one bunch of activists isn't enough to keep it covered.

The other two sites with stories about the anti-sexting bill were
Unicorn Booty (gay) and The Ring of Fire Network (progressive).
