Handing out flyers could get you handcuffedby Dara Kam | March 15th, 2010
Free speech advocates are up in arms about a House bill that would harshly penalize individuals handing out flyers on property owned by hoteliers.
The bill (PCB PSDS 10-03) would allow the seizure of cars, computers or items in cars if a person has been caught more than three times handing out fliers, such as those organizing unions.
The bill would also permit those handing out the fliers to be arrested without probable cause unless they have the written permission of the company that owns the property.
The proposal is slated to be heard in the House Public Safety and Domestic Security Policy Committee tomorrow morning at 8 a.m.
