Legislator proposes live streaming, archiving of General Assembly session
From Delaware Business Now
Delaware State Rep. Mike Smith, R-Pike Creek, is introducing legislation that calls for audio and video of all General Assembly proceedings to be streamed live online.
His bill will also call for all the content to be archived and accessible via the internet, according to the House Republican Caucus.
Currently, only audio of the House and Senate floor deliberations is streamed online, and none of the content is available on the internet. The overwhelming majority of committee meetings are not streamed or digitally recorded in any fashion.
A growing number of local governments have been streaming and archiving their meetings on the Internet.
The governor’s office also streams some events, including the State of the State speech before the General Assembly.
