Hearing gets heated on Iowa Board of Regents bill
DES MOINES (AP) — A proposal that would limit the Iowa Board of Regents from political activities also could limit the panel’s freedom of speech, bill opponents said at a legislative hearing Wednesday.
An Iowa Senate subcommittee discussed the bill at a hearing that sometimes prompted heated exchanges in support and against the regents, the Des Moines Register reported.
Sen. Jeff Danielson, D-Cedar Falls, said the bill stems from controversies involving academic freedom at Iowa State University.
