The American Civil Liberties Union has reached a temporary agreement with state officials to allow peaceful protests in the Capitol without a permit during the upcoming veto session.
Court records show that the ACLU and the state have agreed to allow individuals and groups of fewer than five people to participate in "nondisruptive" protests at the statehouse without obtaining a permit during the veto session starting May 1.
Additionally, the state has agreed to let protesters display handheld signs in the Capitol during the legislative veto session . . .
