N.C. House Sessions May Be Live On TV

The North Carolina House is interested in letting voters see what they do every day without having to show up in person.

House Speaker Joe Hackney said Monday he's established a study
committee to examine the feasibility of televising floor sessions
live. He wants a report before the Legislature reconvenes in
January.

Hackney said airing floor debate would open up the legislative
process more and give people better knowledge of what goes on in
Raleigh.

The Senate and House already provides audio feeds of their floor
sessions and some committee meetings.

A spokeswoman for Senate leader Marc Basnight says the Senate
has made no decision whether to formally study airing their own
sessions.
