Republican Indiana Sen. Todd Young is among a group of senators who have introduced legislation hoping to ban the use of federal money to establish a disinformation governance council at the Department of Justice. Homeland security.

“The idea that a ‘disinformation committee’ of unelected government bureaucrats should enforce the rules of speech is both radical and unconstitutional. The Hoosiers should not have to answer to a government bureaucracy when exercising their First Amendment right to free speech. This council should be shut down immediately,” Young said.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex) called it “Orwellian in nature.” The term “Orwellian” is an adjective describing a situation, idea, or societal condition that George Orwell identified as being destructive to the well-being of a free and open society. Orwell, was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic. His reviews have had an influence on literary criticism.

The Biden administration says the goal of the Disinformation Governance Council is to protect national security by combating foreign misinformation and disinformation. Specific issues mentioned include false information spread by smugglers encouraging migrants to travel to the Mexico-US border, as well as disinformation from the Russian state about election interference and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“The Biden administration wants a government agency dedicated to suppressing what its subjects may say, an idea popular with Orwellian governments around the world. This advice is unconstitutional and un-American — my bill ends it,” Cotton said.

The other Indiana senator, Mike Braun, joined the bill as a co-sponsor. 19 senators across the United States support the legislation.
