Israeli Government Decides Against Internet Filtering Law

The Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted against a bill proposed by Shas MK Amnon Cohen and supported by the previous Communications Minister, Ariel Atias (also from Shas), which would have made it mandatory for internet service providers (ISPs) to offer filtered internet as a default package to home consumers.The 17th Knesset passed the bill in its first reading in February 2008, but for the 18th Knesset to vote on it, a decision by the ministerial committee was needed.
