MORE’s border wall, Fox News reported Tuesday.

Under the proposed legislation, formally known as House Bill 2444, electronic devices sold in the state would be required to include porn blockers by law. 

However, those who wish to view pornography would be required to request the block be deactivated from the company that distributed the device and pay a deactivation fee of $20 to the Arizona Commerce Authority.

The fund reportedly provides support to a number of efforts by way of grants, including the president’s proposed border wall.

In order to pass, two-thirds of the Arizona State House would need to vote "yes" on the measure, which reportedly only has one sponsor at present: Griffin.

The report comes as the government enters its 32nd day of a partial shutdown, which was spurred largely by Trump’s demand for $5 billion in funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Democratic lawmakers have demanded the president end the impasse and have rejected his calls for wall funding.
