U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer is proposing legislation that would set additional rules for how leaks about government secrets are investigated.
Schumer said yesterday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that when the government is going to ask a news organization to divulge information it first must go to a judge. He says that judge would "impose a balancing test" to determine which is more important, the government's desire to find the information or the robust freedom of the press.

Schumer last summer asked Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to modify the federal school lunch program to incorporate Greek yogurt as a high-protein meat alternative.
