Stefanik Stands up for Free Speech

Cosponsors Legislation to Defund the Biden Administration’s Disinformation Governance Board

May 5, 2022

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik cosponsored the Protecting Free Speech Act to terminate the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, also known as the “Ministry of Truth,” and prohibit any federal funds from being used to establish or carry out the activities of any other entity that is substantially similar.

“I will always stand up for Americans’ First Amendment right to free speech,” Stefanik said. “As the Biden administration takes one more step towards Communism by creating a Disinformation Governance Board, I am proud to cosponsor legislation to terminate this obstruction to Americans’ free speech and prevent taxpayer dollars from funding any future attack on this Constitutional right.”

The action follows Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ announcement that DHS will convene a “Disinformation Governance Board.”
