Colleges Scrambling to Scrap Free Speech Codes in Accordance with Congress

As the College Fix reported:

More than 100 colleges and universities are flouting a deadline given to them by the chairman of a powerful congressional committee, regarding their commitment to freedom of expression.

At least some of them are keeping the committee waiting because they are asking for advice from a First Amendment watchdog on campus issues before explaining why they have been flagged as hostile to free expression, and how they will fix the situation.

Though they were supposed to respond to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., by Aug. 28, none of the 160 schools that were contacted has sent a response, an aide to the committee told The College Fix.
