PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Legislature has approved a revision of a 2014 law barring so-called “revenge porn.”

House Bill 2561 was adopted by the Senate and House Thursday and now heads to Gov. Doug Ducey’s desk.

Republican Rep. J.D. Mesnard has been pushing legislation to address constitutional concerns raised in a lawsuit.

The American Civil Liberties Union sued on behalf of three groups last year and the two sides agreed to block it to allow revisions.

The ACLU says it can’t yet say if the changes allay worries that the law makes anyone distributing or displaying a nude image without explicit permission guilty of a felony.

Mesnard got unanimous support last year for his bill making it a crime for jilted lovers to post nude photos of their former partners online.
