LEGISLATION DETAILS
The bill, co-authored by Rep. Edward Clere, R-New Albany, and Rep. Edward DeLaney, D-Indianapolis, would provide protections for student journalists if passed this session.

The bill would make it so an educational institution can’t censor school-sponsored media unless it’s libelous or slanderous.

If passed, Indiana would join 11 other states which currently have either free expression laws protecting student journalists or student speech rights in their education codes.
