Americans For Prosperity Virginia Backs Press Freedom Legislation

Jan 22, 2020 by AFP

Strong and independent journalism allows Americans to access information that enriches public discourse and enables citizens to hold their government accountable. HB36 & SB80 ensure the freedom of the press that protects journalistic pursuits extends to student journalists as well. APF-VA is proud to support both this legislative session.

State Director JC Hernandez issued the following statement regarding the bills:

“Protecting student journalists from censorship enables them to freely seek out and report on stories and, in doing so, enrich discourses within their schools and universities. HB36 & SB80 allows students to exercise their speech rights and refine their skills in an open educational environment.”
