First Amendment Concerns Result In Letter to Gov. Herbert Urging Veto of H.B. 44

19 March 2013 Published in Legislative Work

The ACLU of Utah has delivered a letter to Governor Herbert asking him to veto H.B. 44, "Election Polling," saying it violates the First Amendment because it compels disclosures that chill political speech. The bill would require disclosure of the person who pays for a poll regarding a candidate or ballot proposition and impose a fine for failure to disclose.
