2 Arizona bills raise First Amendment questions

Several measures at the Arizona Capitol this session take on free speech directly. One that has gotten unanimous support so far would make it easier for legislators, election officers and county officials to shield their home addresses and other personal information.

Another aims to protect free speech on college campuses, where conservatives have claimed their voices are silenced. 

Both raise questions about our attempts to regulate the First Amendment. The Show talked to Gregg Leslie, executive director of the First Amendment Clinic at ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, about some of these proposals.
