South Dakota Legislature Passes Bill Mandating Intellectual Diversity in its Colleges

The state legislature for South Dakota passed HB 1087 by a 51-12 vote, and the bill prevents any publicly-funded higher education institution from discriminating “against any student or student organization based on the content or viewpoint of their expressive activity.” This could be a big win for free-speech advocates and conservatives, with the latter often being outnumbered in colleges.
