I tried looking for the text of this bill in thomas.loc.gov. No such luck.
I am surprised that considering the bill and the speed at
which the new Congress is acting on items, that it is not
there yet. Time to eliminate that lag!!

UNREASONABLE NETWORK POLICING PROPOSED
Yesterday, Senator Jim Exon (D-NE) introduced S.314, the
Communications Decency Act of 1995, in the United States
Senate. In an effort to stamp out digital pornography, it
makes all telecommunications providers doing business in the
United States (from the telephone companies all the way down
to offices that use LANs) liable for the content of anything
sent over their networks. To avoid the possibility of tens
of thousands of dollars in fines and up to two years in
jail, business owners would be forced to police their
networks and monitor in advance all messages sent over them.
