E-M:/ NEW INFORMATION CRIME FOR FEDERAL WORKERS

July 25, 2002--NEW INFORMATION CRIME FOR FEDERAL WORKERS;

Public Information Officers at Risk for Warning Public President Bush’s proposal to create a Department of Homeland Security also would create a new type of crime that can only be committed by a federal employee – the crime of disclosing corporate information.  The plan empowers private companies to bar the government from using corporate information in warnings to the public or emergency response crews even where that information would save lives.
