Shield looks like a go in the House


A bill that would provide a federal shield for reporters protecting sources recently cleared a key Senate committee with a 15-2 vote, and now it looks like the full House of Representatives is set to OK a version. According to USA Today, one of the bill’s backers, former Talkmeister Mike Pence (R-IN) is expecting "a strong bipartisan vote," and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is said to be ready to bring the matter to the floor.
