Legislature Could be Web Cast under Bill Passed by Senate

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Cameras could be coming to the Arkansas Senate after all.

Senators voted 27-to-5 yesterday to potentially allow their sessions to be broadcast live over the Internet.  Senators last week rejected the proposal.  The bill, as initially presented in the House, would have required showing the sessions over the Internet.  However, senators amended the bill to make it only a suggestion.

The bill now heads to the House for representatives to consider the change.
