Got free speech at Ariz. colleges? Only if you’ve got money, two weeks

ADF letter says policy requiring visitors to pay fee, buy insurance, wait 14 days
before engaging in free speech on campus is unconstitutional

PHOENIX — Alliance Defense Fund attorneys sent Maricopa Community Colleges a letter Wednesday exhorting officials to discontinue their enforcement of a policy that puts unconstitutional burdens on visitors if they wish to engage in free speech on the system’s campuses.  ADF attorneys argue that charging fees, requiring an insurance payment, and demanding a two-week advance notice is unconstitutional.

The letter was prompted by a situation involving a private, local citizen who wanted to express his Christian beliefs on the campus of South Mountain Community College but could not because of the college system’s burdensome requirements.
