Almost - the major sections of Title V (OBSCENITY AND VIOLENCE) which 
cover computers deal with willful distribution to a minor, or with the 
intent to harrass someone.  There's something in there about the 
community standards, but nothing that bans sexually explicit 
materials totally.  Most of the rest of the bill deals with 
deregulation or reregulation of cable and telephone companies.

To get the full text of the bill, check out http://thomas.loc.gov/ and 
look for bill S.562.
