Lance Harris on Civil Rights

 

 


Establish state policy on free expression at colleges

HB269: Proposed law provided for a state policy on free expression on public postsecondary education institution campuses.

Analysis by the Baton Rouge Advocate: The legislation ensures the free speech of controversial speakers on state college campuses and penalizes students who disrupt it. The legislation would direct colleges to spell out policies that would prevent students, outside speakers or others from being shouted down because of unpopular views.

Veto message: This bill is a solution in search of a problem that creates a long, detailed structure for the evaluation of the freedom of expression on college campuses. However, this bill is unnecessary and overly burdensome to our colleges and universities as the freedoms this bill attempts to protect are already well-established.

Legislative Outcome:Passed House 66-26-13 on 5/24/17; State Rep. Harris was primary sponsor and voted YES; Passed Senate 30-2-6 on 6/7; Vetoed by Governor on 6/26.

Strongly anti-gender identity, according to AFA survey.

Harris opposes the AFA survey question on gender identity

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
