NOTE: This is an expanded version of a report originally aired on KMUD News on June 30, 2017.
Across America, state legislatures are considering so-called campus free speech laws. Developed by right-wing think tanks funded with cash from billionaire right-wing activists like the Koch, DeVos, and Mercer families, these bills would protect the speech of both neo-nazis and paid advocates for corporations. At the same time, the so-called free speech laws could impose a crackdown on political speech by college students, faculty, and administrators. Dan Young reports.
