Hobbs Allows Pornography to be Filmed in

Arizona's K-12 Public School Classrooms

PHOENIX, ARIZONA— Senator Jake Hoffman is calling out Governor Hobbs for her outrageous veto of a bill that would have made it a crime to film pornography in any buildings funded by taxpayer dollars, including the classrooms of our K-12 public schools.

Seven months ago, local media reported two teachers in Mohave County were fired after students and parents found easily accessible pornographic material posted online, made by the couple, some of which was created in the very classroom one of those teachers was working in. Unfortunately, current state law does not establish this as an illegal practice.

SB 1696 (sexually explicit materials; government; prohibition) would have prohibited government property from being used as a site to film or facilitate sexually explicit acts and would have established a violation as a class 5 felony.

"Once again, Katie Hobbs is spotlighting Democrats' far-left extremism by vetoing yet another bill intended to protect our children from exposure to sexually explicit materials at the hands of Arizona governments," said Senator Hoffman. "It's absolutely sickening that Katie Hobbs is allowing pornography to be filmed in our state's taxpayer funded classrooms. These should be safe spaces for our kids to learn in, not venues for the sexually explicit adult entertainment industry. No 12-year-old child should ever have to worry that their middle school desk was the location of a porn shoot, yet because of Hobbs' actions, this is precisely the case. Hobbs should be ashamed of herself, and every parent in the state of Arizona should be outraged. This is a despicable use of government resources, and there should be legal repercussions in place to discourage these types of practices from ever occurring again."
