The Senate and House sponsors of a reporter’s shield law held a Capitol Hill press conference to promote the bill and said there will be a House hearing May 12 and a Senate hearing shortly after. They also said they have had “constructive” conversations about the bill with the Justice Department and the White House. The sponsors are Sens. Dick Lugar (R-IN) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Reps. Mike Pence (R-IN) and Rick Bouncher (D-VA). (4/28/05)
