North Carolina Adopts Campus Free Speech Law

Aug 4, 2017

North Carolina has joined a handful of other states in passing legislation to protect the right of free speech on college campuses. It requires campus administrators to set up disciplinary sanctions against students who disrupt the free speech of other students and invited campus speakers. It also prohibits university administrators from disinviting speakers to the campus, either because they disagree with what the speakers might say or because of threatened protests.

Four other states have adopted similar legislation and bills along the same lines are being considered in Texas, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and even surprisingly in California. Many conservatives are saying it is about time.
