HB0538/SB0723 Protects free speech on TN University campuses Smith/Overby

Bill Description

This bill prohibits state universities from any policy limiting free speech.

TLRC Position

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.

TLRC Observed Process

This is a 2017 bill. TLRC did not observe the process.
