U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court struck down California’s anti-speech requirement that nonprofits must give government officials detailed information on their donors.
“This is an obvious victory for the First Amendment and for free speech. California’s anti-speech policies were un-American hogwash, and everyone from conservatives like Americans for Prosperity to liberals like the American Civil Liberties Union came together to oppose this bullying and intimidation. So let’s set the record straight: This wasn’t a win for ‘conservatives’ - this was a win for every American because free speech is for everyone.”
