This resolution expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that free speech zones and restrictive speech codes of institutions of higher education (IHEs) are inherently at odds with the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution. In addition, this resolution urges IHEs to facilitate and recommit themselves to protecting the free and open exchange of ideas.
