Herpin Issues Statement on Defeat of Shield Law Legislation

Senator Bernie Herpin (R-Colorado Springs) issued the following statement today on Democrats in the Senate Judiciary Committee voting down his media shield law bill in a 3-2 party line vote: 

“I’m extremely disappointed that we didn’t strengthen the media shield law in Colorado and regret that my Democratic colleagues didn’t act to protect the freedom of the press. It’s important that we preserve and strengthen freedom of the press so that they can act as watchdogs of government on our behalf. It’s very unfortunate that SB 34 was voted down on a party line when there is much more at stake here than politics.”
