Legislative Broadcasts and Webcasts

3/18/2020

Coverage of Floor Proceedings and Committee Hearings

 

Video cameraLive webcasts or television broadcasts of legislative floor proceedings are available in all 50 state legislatures, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Many legislatures also offer webcasts of all or selected committee hearings. More than half the states also archive and make available on the web floor proceedings, and about half archive some or all committee proceedings (for varying lengths of time). At least 25 states and D.C. broadcast some legislative proceedings on television.

Below is a chart with links to state legislatures' offerings. Some links may not be active if proceedings are not taking place at the time the link is selected.

May/June 2020 Update: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many state legislatures have been meeting remotely and have been live-streaming floor sessions or committee meetings to ensure public access, which may not yet be reflected in the table below. Many of these states are providing on-demand recordings as well.
