Ballweg Votes For Campus Free Speech Act
State Representative Joan Ballweg of Markesan supported the Campus Free Speech Act to protect the freedom of expression of students, faculty, and staff at college campuses across Wisconsin. Ballweg voted in favor the measure passed by the Assembly this week. The bill directs the UW System Board of Regents to adopt a policy on freedom of expression for every campus. It also creates graduated disciplinary measures for students who violently disrupt the free speech of others. The bill now heads to the state Senate for consideration.
