Archived audio, video of legislative proceedings could be posted same-day in 2014

Now that the Legislature has approved archiving the video and audio streams of its proceedings during its sessions, Peter Morrill, general manager of Idaho Public Television, told the Legislative Council today that IPTV’s goal for the upcoming 2014 session is to have that day’s audio and video files from committee meetings and House and Senate floor sessions up and posted on the Internet for public access within 24 hours. House Speaker Scott Bedke applauded the news. “I think we’re conducting the people’s business, and they have a right to view those proceedings that directly affect them at their leisure,” Bedke said. “Archiving allows them to not have to be here. We’ve got all this technology – we should use it.”
