In a Reversal, Senate Intelligence Panel to Release Vote Tallies

Before agreeing to change the policy Thursday, Chambliss defended the Intelligence panel’s secrecy earlier this week.

“Well, this committee operates in a classified world. We’re going to continue that,” Chambliss said Monday. Pressed on why he thought vote positions should be classified, Chambliss simply replied, “Why not?”

The answer for Intelligence panel member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., seems to be that there are “lines to be drawn” between protecting classified operations and “making sure that the laws themselves are public.”
