Artificial Intelligence Use in Political Advertising (Monitor) – Passed

CS/HB 919 (Rizo) and CS/SB 850 (DiCeglie) require political advertisements, electioneering communications or other miscellaneous advertisements to include a specified disclaimer if the advertisement or communication was created in whole or in part with the use of generative artificial intelligence and the generated content appears to depict a real person performing an action that did not actually occur. The bills subject a person who fails to include the disclaimer in an advertisement or communication to civil penalties. CS/HB 919 passed the House (104-8) and the Senate (32-0) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (O’Hara)
