Lawmaking live

Today Monday, Stateline.org reports on the nationwide trend of state legislatures offering TV and Web coverage of their proceedings. Only five states provide no live coverage, yet many at least deliver Internet updates.

"The spread of digital cable may bolster states’ efforts by drastically expanding the number of channels available, eliminating existing competition for slots, " journalist Hayley Wynn writes. As high speed access becomes more popular, streamed webcasts of proceedings also offer an inexpensive alternative for those states with budget constraints.
