Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-VT, is urging swift passage of a reporter-source shield bill that has cleared the Judiciary Committee he heads but is not yet scheduled for a floor vote. He notes that the bill had broad bi-partisan support in the committee and that a similar bill cleared the House 398-21. He also asked that the House bill be placed on the Senate’s executive calendar to speed its consideration. (11/12/07)
