News I Was a Teenage Press Bill
posted by March 13 at 6:51 AMon
I got word a little after midnight last night that my favorite bill, the student press bill, passed the House 58-37.
Three GOP amdendments, including one that would have taken highschool students out of the bill, limiting the First Amendment protections to college students—failed.
Onto the Senate. If it passes there, Washington state will rightly grant its students greater rights than the limited federal rights (I’d call them restraints rather than rights) put in place by the Reagan-era courts.
Three cheers. Okay. I’ll shut up about all this soon enough.
