ACLU raps new law banning state-paid travel to terrorist nations
Tallahassee, Florida (AP) â€”
A civil rights group criticized a new law that Gov. Jeb Bush signed today which restricts colleges and universities from using state funds for travel to countries classified as terrorist states by the U.S. government.
Legislators passed the bill in May. The countries on the terrorist list are Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
A spokesman from the Florida American Civil Liberties Union says the law will stifle research in countries that Americans need to know about in order to improve security. He also says the new law could get in the way of academic and humanitarian projects in other countries.
