TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A bill aimed at preventing children from seeing obscene or harmful images while using the Internet in schools and public libraries is coming up for debate in the Kansas Senate.

Senators planned to discuss the measure Tuesday, only a day after their Education Committee endorsed it.

The bill initially would have required schools and libraries to have technology installed on computers, such as filters or content blockers, to prevent children from viewing child pornography or other obscene or harmful material.

The committee amended the bill so that in addition to technology, schools and libraries can have a process for filtering Internet content. Committee members said the change gives local officials more flexibility in meeting the bill's goal without facing additional costs.
