Newtown privacy debate to resume in new session

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The emotional debate over victim privacy rights after the Newtown school massacre is expected to resume at the Connecticut state Capitol.

Legislative committees are expected to soon begin debating recommendations from a task force to restrict public access to certain crime scene photos, 911 audio tapes and other information concerning homicides.

Disagreements are already developing.

Democratic Senate President Donald E. Williams Jr. says he doesn't support the all the proposals. He calls it ``ill-advised'' to restrict public access to audio tapes of 911 calls related to homicides.

But House Speaker Brendan Sharkey, another Democrat, hasn't made up his mind yet. He says he's sensitive to the concerns of both the media and the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims, whose privacy worries originally prompted the legislative debate.
