House Passes Reporter Shield Measure

Last week the House passed the Pence/Boucher sponsored Free Flow of Information Act 2007 (reporter shield bill) by a veto-proof margin of 398-21. The measure now proceeds to the Senate, which is considering its own piece of legislation (S. 2035); that bill passed out of committee on October 4. President Bush has already suggested he will veto a federal reporter shield law.
