Abbott justified the passage of this bill saying that “Some colleges are banning free speech on college campuses.”

As he was signing the bill into law, Abbot stated “Shouldn’t have to do it. First Amendment guarantees it. Now, it’s law in Texas.”

In April, The College Fix reported that the bill in question, SB18, guarantees that “the common outdoor areas of the institution’s campus are deemed traditional public forums” and “allows universities to impose time/place/manner restrictions as long as those restrictions follow published and viewpoint-neutral criteria and allow for “ample” alternative expression.”

This bill also gives members of a university community the ability “to assemble or distribute written material without a permit or other permission” from leaders on campus.  Further, it establishes “disciplinary sanctions for students, student organizations, or faculty who unduly interfere with the expressive activities of others on campus.”

Last but certainty not least, SB18 protects student organizations from arbitrary denial of general university services simply because the organization’s view fall outside the boundaries of acceptable opinion. In a similar vein, this legislation prevents universities from charging organizations higher security fees due to the controversial speakers they bring on campus.

Similar legislations has passed in states like AlabamaKentuckySouth DakotaTennesseeColoradoIowa and Arkansas.

Free speech has become a major issue lately, with social media outlets and universities alike advancing political correctness culture to silence critics. However, certain red states have had enough of the Left’s push against free speech and are taking action to uphold basic freedoms in public squares.

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.

Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.

President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
