Senator BROWN (11:32 AM) —It does not mandate anything. The legislation says:

It is within the competence of a court in considering all the circumstances of a case, to determine whether a defendant's legal representative requires a security clearance before he or she can access information, and a court may so order.

It might order that this person does not require a clearance; it does not mandate anything at all.

Question put:

That the amendment (Senator Brown's) be agreed to.
