College students who block protesters or speakers from speaking on public colleges and  universities would be penalized under a bill now in the state Senate.

 

The “Campus Free Speech Act” would penalize people who infringe on protester’s, speaker’s, student’s and professor's first amendment rights. The rules would apply to the state’s public universities and community colleges.
