Leveson Report on British
press set to be released today

Recommendations
come in wake of
phone-hacking
scandal
LONDON (AP) - Prime Min-
ister David Cameron failed to
offer any clues Wednesday on
whether he will support new
more stringent regulation of
Britain's press following the
conclusion of a yearlong inquiry
into the country's unruly tab-
loids.
Cameron got a sneak preview
of Lord Justice Brian Leve-
son's report, which is set for
public release Thursday. But in
carefully crafted remarks that
shielded how he would respond
to the judge's recommenda-
tions, Cameron told lawmakers
he wanted all of the major par-
ties to agree on the next step.
"Whatever the changes we
make, we wanta robust and free

press in our country," Cameron
said.
The inquiry was launched
after revelations of widespread
illegal behavior at the News of
the World, the top-selling Sun-
day publication that was eventu-
ally closed by its owner, Rupert
Murdoch's News International.
The scandal rocked Britain's
establishment with evidence of
media misdeeds, police corrup-
tion and too-cozy links between
the press and politicians.
And News International,
which is part of New York listed
News Corp., has been hit with
dozens of -lawsuits over the
interception of telephone voice-
mails. Reporters and executives
have been arrested - and the
entire media supervision system
has been called into question.
The essential issue swirling
around the report is whether
the government will pass new
laws to curb the press, possibly
involving the creation of a new
regulatory body, or whether

some modifications can be made
to the current system whereby
the press monitors itself, so-
called self-regulation.
Cameron declined to respond
to members of his own Conser-
vative Party, who are pressur-
ing the government to pass new
laws. Instead, he said he would
meet with opposition leaders
about the report's contents in a
quest for cross-party support.
"What matters most I believe
is that we end up with an inde-
pendent regulatory system that
can deliver, and in which the
public have confidence," he said.
Harriet Harman, the deputy
leader of the Labour opposition,
said she agreed with Cameron's
comments, telling the BBC the
present system had failed.
"Yes, it has to be independent
of government and politics and
Parliament. We don't want to
have anything to do with regu-
lating the press," she said. "But
it's also got to be independent
of newspapers. You can't have

Appeals to Congress
for tens of billions of
dollars in assistance
WASHINGTON (AP) - New
York City Mayor Michael Bloom-
berg appealed to congressional
leadersWednesdayforquickaction
on providing tens of billions of dol-
lars in new federal aid to help his
city and state and others recover
from Superstorm Sandy but was
told it might be some time before
it's forthcoming - and it likely
won't be all at once.
Bloomberg met with more than
a half-dozen lawmakers, including
several who chair or siton commit-
tees controlling the government's
purse strings, aswell and both par-
ties' leaders in the House and Sen-
ate.
"Hurricane recovery is not a
partisan issue," he told reporters
at a news conference in between
the meetings. "We have to bring
together both sides in Washing-
ton."
New York state alone is seeking
$42billionin additionalfederal aid.
New Jersey is seeking federal aid to
cover most of the nearly $37 billion
cost for recovery and rebuilding.
So far about $2 billion in fed-
eral funds - about half for direct
assistance to individuals - have
been provided to the two most
heavily damaged states and nine

others in the storm's path. There's
about $5 billion left in the Federal
Emergency Management Agency's
disaster relief fund, but last year's
budget agreement permits Presi-
dent Barack Obama to seek another
$5.4 billion without hitting a ceil-
ingonspending.
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine,
a member of the Appropriations
Committee and the top Republican
on the Homeland Security Com-
mittee that oversees disaster relief,
struck a skeptical note after her
meeting with the mayor.
"It's going to be ahard sell," she
said, given Congress's preoccupa-
tion with the fiscal cliff crisis and
tight budget restraints. Reflecting
a line taken in the past by House
Budget Committee Chairman
Paul Ryan and other fiscal conser-
vatives, she said at least some of
the new spending for Sandy relief
and rebuilding should be offset by
spending cuts in other government
programs.
"Otherwise it's just going to be
added to the debt and that makes
it even more difficult for us to deal
with the fiscal challenges," she
said.
Collins said she needs to see
more detailed numbers on dam-
ages before deciding on how much
Sandy aid is needed. But she said
New York's request is "reasonable"
if the damages can be documented
and added that state and city offi-
cials have not tried to exaggerate

the damages, as she claims hap-
pened .with Hurricane Katrina
seven years ago.
Bloomberg and New York Sen.
Chuck Schumer said they were
pressing White House officials
for as much money as possible, as
soon as possible, but they didn't
know what amount Obama will
seek. Whatever it is, the request
could get tied up in the talks aimed
at averting the fiscal cliff - a $6
trillion combination of automatic
tax increases and spending cuts -
beginningin January.
"There's no doubt this is going
to be a hard fight," said Schumer.
"We have a Congress that is decid-
edly less friendly to disaster aid
than any in100years. We're in very
strenuous negotiations overthe fis-
cal cliff. We know money is short
in Washington, just as it is in New
York."
Schumer said he expects the
fight for Sandy money to drag
on for months and that several
emergency spending bills will be
needed. State officials worry that
Congress's desire to- satisfy the
hunger for aid will fade as time
wears on.
"So far we believe our col-
leagues have been very receptive,"
said Schumer. "But there's a long
road to go and there are going
to be many pitfalls in the way,
particularly given the climate in
Washington and the shortage in
money."
