“The student press has played a crucial role in training young people to be the journalists of the future, and training kids to have a critical frame of mind and be engaged in current events and the big questions of the times.”

Sen. Jamie Raskin, the lead sponsor of the New Voices of Maryland bill

Senate Bill 764 became law effective Oct. 1, 2016, with Gov. Larry Hogan’s signature. The bill protects the rights of high school and college journalists as well as protecting their faculty advisers against retaliation, making it one of the most comprehensive press-freedom laws in the country.
