Critics Upset About Deadly Agents Bill (5-8-09) …

GALVESTON, Texas

  • Open government advocates are decrying a bill passed by the Texas Senate that would curtail the public’s access to state laboratories’ information on “select agents” such as the Ebola virus, anthrax and other deadly substances.
  • But supporters say the measure protects the security of the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston’s National Lab and the privacy of researchers.
  • “We’ve been very open and transparent, and I certainly don’t see this changing,” said Dr. James LeDuc, deputy director of the national laboratory, The Galveston County Daily News reported.
  • Federal law, which the bill is supposed to mirror, protects the names of employees, officials say.
