The Indiana chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is suing two Hoosier towns they say violated the Constitution.
One of the cities involved is Yorktown, which is just west of Muncie.
The suit claims that new rules for people who go door-to-door are unfair. The ACLU said the laws make it harder for people to exercise their First Amendment rights when canvassing neighborhoods for petition drives or to raise money for their cause.
They have dramatically cut the times that citizen action coalitions can do this. They have required an exorbitant amount of fees in order from them to do it and they’ve imposed restrictive permitting,” said Gavin Rose with the ACLU.
The other city involved is Jeffersonville in the southeastern portion of Indiana.
So far, officials from both areas have not commented on the lawsuit.
