                     WASHINGTON -- Claiming terrorists could
                     "obtain all this potentially dangerous
                     information," the chairman of the House
                     Commerce committee said Tuesday he
                     wants to make it unlawful to publish
                     reports about chemical-plant safety on
                     the Internet. 

                     "I don't think that we can go too far to
                     prevent terrorism," said Tom Bliley, a
                     Virginia Republican.
