As the Ruby Ridge report was being released, Sen. Arlen Specter, chairman of the Senate Judiciary subcommittee, said that his committe will hold hearings early next year to determine whether the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms "should continue to exist in its present form" or be folded into another federal agency. Specter said ATF passed false information about Randy Weaver to other law enforcement agencies.
