Senate to consider webcasting bill today

Seems like a long time ago when the session was just getting started and the big hoopla was over webcasting. Of course, since then, we've seen the addition of video and audio streaming of House and Senate meetings from a variety of groups, including two lawmakers. (Well, almost two. Rep. Dennis Kintigh reports he's still working through the glitches on his webcasting system.)

But Rep. Janice-Arnold Jones took the lead on this issue as has been diligently putting her committee meetings out there for all to see.

Will the Senate do the same?

It is set today to consider Sen. Mark Boitano's measure to allow webcasting from the Senate floor. Expect some good debate on this one.

Update, 1:45 p.m.

So looks like the Senate won't get to that bill today. Senators were busy on other things today. Stay tuned this weekend I guess.
