Senate Committee Delays Shield Law Vote Until September

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee will wait until after August recess to vote on federal shield law legislation introduced last week. The committee met today to consider the Free Flow of Information Act, but ran out of time before holding a vote.

The Committee is scheduled to reconvene Sept. 12. In the meantime, senators will work to hash out amendments to the legislation. And First Amendment advocates, including the Authors Guild, will continue efforts to support the bill.
