Wyoming Proposes ALEC Bill Cracking Down on Pipeline Protests

This article talks about a third state’s attempt to stifle pipeline protests, using  legislation developed by America American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a fossil fuel, climate change-denying political organization. The legislation imposes felony sentencing, 10 years in prison, and/or a $100,000 fine on individuals who “willfully damage, destroy, vandalize, deface, or tamper with equipment in a critical infrastructure facility.”

It is clearly an attempt to eliminate Constitutional protections of free speech.
