In December, the Kansas Board of Regents instituted a policy governing social media use for the seven-university system in the state. The controversy over the sweeping policy and the possibility of first amendment issues has been heating up ever since. KMUW's Aileen LeBlanc has this report:
The Kansas Board of Regents wants an in-depth study of a new law that allows more concealed weapons into public buildings.
The regents decided to pursue the study during their annual retreat Tuesday.
The law took effect July 1.
It allows Kansans with concealed carry permits to carry weapons on public college campuses. The regents have requested an immediate six-month exemption for universities, and could later seek an extension through 2017.
