Oregon considers TikTok ban like other states

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon


HB 3127 authored by state Rep. Ben Bowman, D-Tigard, is being debated this week in the Legislature.  It would ban the Chinese owned popular App, TikTok, from being installed on government phones, tablets and other devices.  The concern is over the Chinese government having access to private data from the App.   The bill has both Democrat and Republican sponsors.

Rep. Bowman told OPB, “And I think that it’s a legitimate issue. I’m nervous and concerned about the tension between the United States and China, and the United States and Russia. I definitely believe that cybersecurity is gonna be incredibly important in the coming decades..yet another step the State of Oregon can take to prevent unauthorized access and ensure that state information and infrastructure are protected.”
