Michigan law would suspend students for suppressing speech

Michigan law would suspend students for suppressing speech

A Michigan state senator recently introduced a bill that would require public institutions to suspend students found responsible for disrupting speech.

Senate Bill 350 is one of two free-speech bills (the other is SB 349) proposed by Republican Sen. Patrick Colbeck, both of which would expand free-speech protections for college student and eliminate so-called “free speech zones.”

“Schools are not abiding by the First Amendment now despite clear legal precedent for them to do so.”

SB 350, though, proffers an additional stipulation that would require all public colleges and universities in the state to adopt a “statement warning that any student who has twice been found responsible for infringing upon the expressive rights of others will be suspended for a minimum of 1 year or expelled.”
