Senate and House conferees have agreed to add a measure to an emergency spending bill that will prohibit government agencies from issuing video news releases that do not clearly identify themselves as the source. The ban would be for one year but Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass) and Frank Lautenberg (D-New Jersey) have introduced a bill to make the limitation permanent. (5/4/05)
