Marshall, Waddy and Connors Vote to Limit Speech; Attracts ACLU Review

"On Tuesday, supervisors' efforts to limit the number of times a resident can speak about the same subject failed on a tie vote. The original proposal was to limit a person to one common speech every six months, unless a majority of supervisors votes to suspend the rule. An effort to soften the rule to three months failed on a 3-3 vote. Marshall said this week the proposal to change the bylaws may reappear on an agenda soon.

In Fredericksburg, residents have a five-minute time limit to address City Council; in Stafford, it's a three-minute limit for individuals and five for groups in public comments before the Board of Supervisors.

Spotsylvania's proposal hit the American Civil Liberties Union's radar this week and raised the eyebrows of other people who speak at county board meetings"
