(AP) -Republican legislators are re-introducing a bill that would punish students who interfere with campus speeches and presentations with suspension and expulsion.

The state Assembly passed a bill last session that would suspend University of Wisconsin System students twice accused of disrupting others’ free speech. Students who disrupt others’ free expression a third time would be expelled. The measure died in the Senate but UW regents adopted the sanctions as policy in October.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, Sen. Chris Kapenga and Reps. Cody Horlacher and Dave Murphy re-introduced the bill Tuesday. Passage would cement the sanctions in statute.
