Bill seeks to prevent federal employees from viewing porn at work

02/13/2015 // West Palm Beach, Florida, US // JusticeNewsFlash // Justice News Flash // (press release)

Washington – North Carolina Republican Mark Meadows is seeking a legislative ban on federal employees watching porn on the job. As reported by WebProNews, the congressman has introduced the Eliminating Pornography from Agencies Act in an effort to have such a ban enforced.

Meadows is quoted as stating of the issue, “It’s appalling that it requires an act of Congress to ensure that federal agencies block access to these sites.”

Meadows is further quoted as stating, “While there are rules in place at most agencies to ban this kind of unprofessional and potentially hostile workplace behavior, it continues to take place. There is absolutely no excuse for federal employees to be viewing and downloading pornographic materials on the taxpayers’ dime.”

As noted by WebProNews, a Washington Times report found boredom to be the leading reason federal workers look at porn at work.

Meadows serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. This is his second attempt at getting the bill passed.
