Civil liberties advocate takes issue with some provisions of Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn's proposed rules for RNC protesters
Yesterday Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn announced a proposal for a temporary ordinance during the week of the Republican National Convention in August. Buckhorn proposes what the city is calling a "Clean Zone" that covers about six square miles near downtown Tampa. Gatherings of more than 50 people will be required to apply for a permit for a demonstration lasting no longer than 60 minutes. But advocates for civil liberties are hitting back. We interviewed Mayor Buckhorn after yesterdayâs newscast.
Former Tampa City Council member John Dingfelder is concerned about Buckhornâs proposed temporary ordinance. Dingfelder is now with the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida.
Weâll bring you more from both of them on tomorrowâs newscast at 4 in the afternoon. Tampa City Council will hold its first hearing on the proposal next Thursday.comments powered by Disqus
