A group of Republican senators want a new TV rating system created that could allow parents to block their children from watching shows with LGBTQ characters.
The five senators have sent a letter to the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board asking for the new rating.
One of the five lawmakers who signed the letter is Republican Mike Braun of Indiana.
“In light of parents raising legitimate concerns on sexual orientation and gender identity content on their children’s TV shows, we expect the Board to fulfill its responsibility in updating the TV Parental Guidelines to reflect these concerns,” the letter said.
They hope to have a reply to their request by May 18.
