BSU to Change Event Policies
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise State University officials say they will change their on-campus event policies after private legal organizations said the school violated the First Amendment by charging a student organization security fees for a gun-rights event. University officials had already reimbursed the students $465, but say they will now suspend the policies that allow them to charge for enhanced security earlier this year. The Idaho Freedom Foundation and American Civil Liberties Union of Idaho said the fee was unconstitutional.
Also Tuesday, the university said it will suspend five other rules where enforcement is dependent on subjective discretion, such as allowing exceptions for sound amplification and scheduling events on its property. The rules will be suspended until the university finishes revising them.
