Victory! After so many people showed up to testify against this resolution, Chair of the Subcommittee on Higher Education Judith Zaffarini declared that she would not have a “culture war” in her committee. Senator Wentworth withdrew his bill.
There is currently a resolution before the Subcommittee on Higher Education that echoes the language of Horowitz’s grossly misnamed “Academic Bill of Rights.” scr-3.pdf
Along with a number of students and some great organizers from Free Exchange on Campus, I went on 3/26 to testify before the house subcommittee. Senator Wentworth didn’t bother showing up to present his resolution, so it was tabled. I’ll post my testimony and others’ later, so stay tuned . . .
