The governor layed out his plan to keep kids from pulling up pornography and other smut on the Internet.

Governor Carnahan says most Missouri schools have Internet access and now need money to buy software that regulates Internet use.

OutCue: "...only approved sites."
Contents: "This software can prevent certain words from being used in computer searches, blocks access to particular sites, or allows access to only approved sites."

Funding to buy software would come from tax cuts the governor has layed out in this year's budget.
