Attorney General Alberto Gonzales spoke at the National Press Club on May 20 and gave very generalized responses to a number of questions on the Freedom of Information Act and a shield law. He said his office is concerned about the burdens FOIA now places on the federal agencies and wants to understand what the impact of legislation proposed by Sens. John Cornyn and Patrick Leahy might be. He said he didn’t have an “independent” judgment on shield law legislation. (5/23/05)
