(Olympia, WA)  --  State senators are considering legislation that supporters say would make sure student journalists at some public high schools and colleges in Washington aren't subject to unnecessary censorship by school administrators.  The measure is part of a nationwide move to clarify students' rights to free speech via broadcast and published media.  The "Seattle Times" reports the bill would allow students at public schools to release content without prior restraint, as long as the material isn't slanderous, libelous, or in violation of federal or state law.  If the legislation passes, Washington would join about a dozen other states that have enacted similar laws.
