It's up and web casting the House Tax and Revenue Committee. CLICK HERE

Rep. Janice Arnold-Jones, R-Albuquerque, (above) is triumphant in her quest to web cast a committee meeting. But Rep. Ed Sandoval, chairman of the committee, twice during the meeting asked her not to.

"I would ask that hopefully we could not do it today," he said.

The web cast continues, however.

UPDATE, 3:19 p.m.

Reps. Tom Taylor and Ken Martinez have introduced a rule that would leave the question of whether web casting is allowed up to the chairman of the committee. It will be heard Tuesday morning at 8:30 in the House Rules committee.

Who would have thought web casting would be a big deal this session? Almost every other state does it. While the New Mexico Senate spent $30,000 on cameras to web cast but later took them down, it voted Monday to reconsider that decision, so stay tuned.

Update, 5:57 a.m. Tuesday.

Read this story for more info on the situation.

Check back later for info from the Rules Committee meeting this morning.
