Students propose New Voices Act: University of Jamestown group pushes free speech bill to state Legislature
JAMESTOWN — A group of University of Jamestown students hopes to protect freedom of speech for North Dakota students through the New Voices Act.
If passed, the three-pronged law would protect speech for students attending public and private colleges and universities, as well as high school students.
Advocates are still working on the text of the law, gathering support for it and preparing to bring it to legislators for vetting as soon as this summer.
