Cencorship bills Stopped!!
This is cause for celebration! The House censorship bill H.5183, and it's kin, is gone for the year, thanks to all your efforts--almost 200 signatures on our letter, countless calls and emails to legislators, and advocacy at the State House. Let's take a moment to bask in this accomplishment and recharge our sense of hope in collective possibilities!
At SCUUJA, we remain cautiously optimistic and vigilant. This is a win with some nuance. There are ways either chamber could try to sneak censorship (or worse) language into another bill or budget proviso. We have watched as other states have done so even at in the final hour of the legislative session. Our partners at the statehouse will be monitoring the situation closely. But for now, again, we are cautiously optimistic!
