Trump to sign college transparency and free speech order

President Trump is preparing to sign an executive order that would increase the amount of information colleges divulge to prospective students, while adding pressure on schools not to discriminate against unpopular political views.

The order will be signed Thursday afternoon and follows Trump’s pledge in a speech this month to sign an executive order on university free speech after incidents, including an alleged assault, targeting conservative students.

The executive order will require that, in order to receive federal grants, schools confirm to 12 federal agencies they are abiding by the First Amendment.

A senior administration official told reporters on a conference call that “agencies will enforce the order how they are already enforcing grant commissions” and that “the institutions will have to agree to all of these conditions to receive grants.”
