Live Broadcasting from the KS Statehouse?



TOPEKA - Various political groups, colleagues and media associations are voicing support for a bill that would allow audio and video from the Kansas Statehouse to go live on the Internet.

The Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee heard testimony Thursday from nearly a dozen witnesses in favor a two-year pilot program. The committee took no action on the bill, but members said they wanted to learn how nearly 40 other states stream daily events to the public.

The proposal calls for installing three cameras in each of four committee rooms that are used frequently by budget, education and tax committees. The public would be able to go online to listen or watch committee action. The project would cost about $178,000 for the two years.
