Illinois legislator introduces campus free speech bill

February 17, 2017

Illinois is the latest state to see an effort to restore free speech on campus, as Stanley Kurtz reports in National Review:

 

Illinois state representative Peter Breen (R., Lombard) has just introduced HB 2939, which would create the Illinois Campus Free Speech Act. Breen’s bill is based on the model campus free-speech legislation I recently co-authored along with Jim Manley and Jonathan Butcher of the Goldwater Institute.
