Last week, students at UC Irvine unsuccessfully attempted to ban any flag, including the American flag, from student government offices on campus. 

In response, Republican state legislators announced Monday that they will introduce a constitutional amendment that would prohibit state-funded universities and colleges from banning the U.S. flag on campuses.

State Senator Janet Nguyen, a UCI graduate, joined Take Two to discuss the proposed legislation.
