HB 1891 would have prohibited knowingly congregating, patrolling, picketing, or demonstrating in a zone extending 15 feet from an entrance to or exit from a health-care facility.

Limited buffer zones allow patients to have safe and unimpeded access to medical services without impairing the constitutional rights of protesters to communicate their message to their intended audience.
