House Approves Bill to put Legislature on the Internet

FEBRUARY 23, 2007 - Posted at 7:33 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas House of Representatives approved a bill yesterday that provides for Internet broadcasts of proceedings in the House and the Senate.

The bill's sponsor, Representative Eric Harris (R-Springdale), says there should be no great costs to put the service into place.  The service would be available to anyone with an Internet connection.

Harris says AETN and Comcast Cable also have expressed interest in the proceedings in both chambers.

Currently, House proceedings are broadcast on Comcast Cable, but there is no broadcasting of the Senate.

The bill passed by a vote of 93 to 0 and now heads to the Senate.
