(Brietbart) — A Tennessee bill designed to protect freedom of speech on college campuses, known as “The MILO Bill,” was filed today with a press conference held afterward.

The press conference was held by Martin Daniels, the representative for Tennessee’s 18th district. Senator Joey Hensley was also present at the meeting, explaining the need for the bill, titled, “Tennessee Freedom of Speech on College Campus Bill,” and the desired outcome of the legislation.

“We just want to ensure that our public universities give all students the right to free expression,” said Senator Hensley. “Too many times we’ve seen classrooms where the professor doesn’t want to hear both sides of an issue, we’ve heard stories from many students that, honestly, are on the conservative side that have those issues stifled in the classroom.

  1. It is a sad day in America when states have to pass laws to insure our GOD given 1st Amendment right to freedom of speech. But I am thankful Rep. Daniel has stepped up. I have no doubt he will be demonized for this action but even if the bill doesn’t pass doesn’t mean a darn thing. We already have the right of free speech and what this Rep. should do is pass a bill that removes all public funding from any college in TN that refuses to honor freedom of speech on campus.
