INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The voices of student journalists just got a little louder.

A state House committee passed a bill Thursday that would extend freedom of speech and press protections to students.

House Bill 1016, authored by Ed Clere, R-New Albany, passed by a vote of 9-2. The bill would make it so a public school or school corporation could not suppress school-sponsored media unless the content creates a disruption of school activity.

Students and teachers called it a small victory for journalism students.

“They have to put a lot of trust in us to be able to say what we want,” Magan Hall, a Plainfield High School junior said.

“I feel that if this bill were passed, they would have a voice without concern for punishment or censorship,” Michelle Burress, the Plainfield High School publications adviser said.

The bill now heads for a second reading in the House. The full bill can be seen here.
