CHRISTIAN NEWS - Aug 13 - A Texas bill that will make sending unwanted sexually explicit photos a criminal offense is set to become law on Sept. 1. Gov. Greg Abbott signed House Bill 2789 into law on June 10 after it passed the House 122-12 in April and unanimously in the Senate in May. Violations would be a Class C misdemeanor and punishable by up to $500 in fines. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Morgan Meyer, R-Dallas, and received the backing of the dating app Bumble. "Sending a lewd photo to someone that has not requested it or someone you don't know is no different than exposing yourself to a stranger in public or performing other lewd acts," Meyer said in a statement.
