One Ohio lawmaker is hoping to add the Buckeye State to a growing list of states requiring age verification to access pornography.

The proposal—Senate Bill 212—would require visitors to pornography sites to confirm they are of legal age by mandating an identification check through an independent, third-party verification application, according to WSYX-TV.

Ohio state Sen. Stephanie Kunze (R) said visitors’ personal identifying information would not be retained after their ages have been verified.

“Your privacy is important to us,” she said. “We’re not trying to breach your privacy but, just like if you were going in to buy something here in the physical world, you would show your ID to show that you were over a certain age.”

Ohio Lt. Gov. John Husted (R) is a supporter of the bill.

He told WSYX-TV, “If you have privacy concerns, you shouldn’t be on websites and you shouldn’t be using these platforms, because they collect all kinds of credit card information, all kinds of user data.”

Age-verification laws have been passed in eight states, including Utah, Montana, Louisiana and Virginia. They have been introduced in another 10 states.
