Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., told a conference of newspaper association managers the House will hold a hearing on his reporters shield bill before the end of the year. He said he’s hopeful teh bill will pass in the current session but said the key is what happens in the Senate, where there is a companion bill filed by Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind. Pence said the bill is more about protecting the public than the press. “This is about the public’s right to know, this is not about protecting reporters.” (11/9/05)
