Free speech returns to Montgomery and Prince George's parks
The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission has indefinitely suspended a series of rules slammed as unconstitutional by the ACLU. They've also agreed to work together on permanent revisions to the regulations.
Park police will no longer stop someone for holding a campaign sign without a permit, as happened to a volunteer campaigning with Montgomery GOP candidate Robin Ficker on the Fourth of July. The park rule makers also dropped permit requirements for collecting signatures and conducting interviews.
