Thank you for protecting students' First Amendment rights
I want to thank you for supporting the Florida Excellence in Higher Education Act of 2018, otherwise known as SB 4.
This bill included a provision that eliminates so-called “free speech zones” on our state’s publicly funded college and university campuses.
Now more than ever, it's important we encourage civil discussion and debate and protect our freedom to speak and express ourselves freely. The measure you championed will ensure that speech is not limited to specific times or spaces on publicly funded campuses. Our entire state is a free speech zone, not just select corners of a college campus.
I just wanted to thank you again for supporting this bill and appreciate the work you have done to protect the First Amendment in our state.
