— A bill designed to find child sex predators is on its way to the state Senate.

The bill, which recently passed the House, requires film and picture processors to tell authorities about any images they find that show minors involved in sexual activity.

The bill also applies to computer technicians who may run across child pornography on a computer they are servicing.
