Akron AAUP Protecting Academic Freedom For a Free Society

Though we were successful in influencing the removal of the anti-faculty, anti-union language from HB64 we should not assume that this fight is over. It remains to be seen if some or all of the language to which we objected will be reinserted when the issue comes before the Ohio Senate. Further, and probably more important, we’ve had word that some members of the House Finance Committee supported removal of these provisions because of concerns over process, NOT content. We should assume that many members of the Ohio House will still advocate for these provisions and that they WILL be brought before the state legislature again in another guise. This is not a problem that is going to dissipate after one weekend-long email campaign!
