State Representative Jason Conger is co-sponsoring a bill that would limit aggressive demonstrations at military and other funerals. Thursday in Salem there was a lot of testimony on the bill. Conger says the Supreme Court decision will actually help them write better bill. "We're working on it in light of the constitutional interpretation of the Supreme Court, to make sure that whatever comes out of the committee whatever comes out will withstand a constitutional challenge. It's an interesting discussion about balancing free speech and the rights of mourning families."  Conger says he was repulsed by the Supreme Court ruling. He believes this bill can be written in a way that it's specific enough that it’s a win-win for everyone.
