IT’S THE LAW (04/18/2023)

Montana legislators approved what would be the first US statewide bill to ban TikTok. SB 419 has been sent to the governor to sign. The bill cites Chinese surveillance as a main cause for concern. If signed, TikTok would be prohibited from offering its platform to residents, and Apple and Google would not be allowed to make TikTok available for download in Montana.
