HB0538/SB0723 Protects free speech on TN University campuses Smith/Overby
This bill prohibits state universities from any policy limiting free speech.
TLRC supports this bill. It is a fundamental right protected by the 1st amendment of our constitution but has come under increasing attack by students and faculty alike on campuses across the nation. This bill should not be necessary but will serve to underscore the law here in Tennessee.
