The path to new child protections on the internet has become more complex as other lawmakers and outside groups propose their own solutions alongside the Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA). Senator Brian Schatz suggests the Protecting Kids on Social Media Act, which would restrict teens' social media use without parental consent, but Republican leaders are reportedly withdrawing their support. Meanwhile, tech industry groups are advocating for the Invest in Child Safety Act, focused on directing more funding to law enforcement. KOSA has already undergone changes to garner support, but concerns remain about censorship and access to resources. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's endorsement provides an advantage for KOSA in the Senate.
