Name: Obscenity Laws Study Commission - RG 596


Historical Note: The Obscenity Laws Study Commission was created by the General Assembly in 1967 to explore methods of combating the distribution of obscene materials; determine methods of informing the public of the origin, scope, and effect of obscene materials; provide a plan for improved coordination between federal, state, and local officials for the suppression of these materials; and to study laws and ordinances relating to these materials and recommend revisions for their improvement. It was composed of three members of the Senate appointed by the president pro tempore, three members of the House appointed by the Speaker, and three public members appointed by the Governor. The commission was to report to the General Assembly by February 15, 1969 and then was to pass from existence on July 1, 1969 (L. 1967, pp. 3644-3645).
