Deputy Orlando Silva (PC do B-SP), rapporteur of the bill that seeks to combat misinformation on the internet and create rules for large platforms, said he hopes to conclude on Tuesday (7) the vote on the proposal in the group of work of the Chamber of Deputies that studies the subject.

The group introduced several modifications to the original bill, approved by the Senate last year. There is no forecast for voting in the plenary of the Chamber. Silva said he will seek out the leaders of the main parties to discuss the matter next week, after voting in the group ends.

He said he is open to suggestions from companies to improve the project. “If everyone complains a little, it’s because the proposal is good,” he said. Affected companies, such as Google, Facebook and Twitter, criticize the group’s fast pace and the creation of obligations that they consider excessive.

For Silva, the latest version of the project included several concessions that contemplate the interests of companies, adopting safeguards to protect trade secrets, differentiating rules for search platforms and reducing requirements foreseen for messaging services such as WhatsApp.
