Opponents to the bill argue the changes would violate the free speech rights of students who want to protest campus speakers.

The state Assembly is set to vote on a bill that would relax Wisconsin's ban on baiting and feeding deer in counties with chronic wasting disease.

If passed, the bill would go to the state Senate.

The legislation would have the UW System write policies that are aimed at making sure students hear viewpoints from both sides of the political aisle. A third offense would lead to a mandatory expulsion. "We have seen gradual yet steady erosion of free expression and free speech within our own taxpayer-funded colleges and universities".

The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin criticized those punishments as "unnecessarily draconian", and warned they could chill free speech on campus.
