"The legislation would ban what are known as "free speech zones," which are designated areas on campus for student expression. It calls for colleges and universities to adopt free speech policies by Jan. 1 . . . But the legislation also warns faculty not to talk about issues that are unrelated to their classes."
Critics say a Missouri bill aimed at protecting student free speech on college campuses would also chip away at free speech for professors. At issue is a bill by Republican Rep. Dean Dohrman that could be up for a full House vote as early as next week.
