WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) voted to pass H.R. 140, Protecting Speech from Government Interference Act, which would prevent federal government officials from using their positions and resources to pressure private companies to silence people’s free speech.
“This country was built on individual freedoms, and no single organization, including the federal government, should determine what constitutes as an acceptable form of speech,”said Congressman Higgins. “The American people have the right to speak their truths, and federal bureaucrats should not be dictating what is or isn’t true. We must continue to uphold the First Amendment as our founding fathers intended.”
Congressman Higgins is an original co-sponsor of H.R. 140.
