While I away last week, there was good and bad news on the shield law front.
In Washington, the state legislature approved a shield law and sent it on to the governor, who was expected to sign it. The Seatlle Post-Intelligencer has details.
Meanwhile, a Texas shield bill died after failing to be brought for a vote. More details from AP via the First Amendment Center.
Here in Massachusetts, a shield bill remains pending in the state legislature.
