A reporter shield law drafted by Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna will be introduced by a bipartisan group of legislators. Thirty-one states and the District of Columbia now have similar shield laws. McKenna cast the bill as good government legislation: “The reporter’s privilege helps maintain an open and accountable government and society.” (12/6/05)
