Florida Hearing on Goldwater Campus Free Speech Proposal

I will be testifying before the Postsecondary Education Subcommittee of the Florida State House next Thursday, February 23, on the model campus free speech legislation I recently co-authored with James Manley and Jonathan Butcher of the Goldwater Institute. My testimony comes at the invitation of Representative Michael Bileca, Chair of Florida’s House Education Committee. After the hearing, I will be addressing the same topic at Florida’s James Madison Institute.

As noted last week, North Carolina’s Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest has already announced that his state’s General Assembly will soon be considering a bill based on the Goldwater campus free speech proposal.
