LOC Launches New Site to Webcast House Committee Proceedings

Feb 2, 2012

WASHINGTON – The Committee on House Administration, in collaboration with the House Recording Studio and the Library of Congress (LOC), is pleased to announce a new legislative transparency initiative that provides standardized and uniform live video-streaming of House committee proceedings on one centralized website for public access.

Committee on House Administration Chairman Dan Lungren, R-Calif., issued the following statement on today’s announcement:

“Our democracy is strengthened through transparency and an open congressional process. These videos, now available to the public in one centralized location, will allow constituents to quickly access House committee proceedings.

“I want to thank each of our committees, the House Recording Studio, and especially the Library of Congress for working collaboratively to achieve this important milestone, and I look forward to working with each entity to further increase legislative transparency.”

In addition to the live webcasts, the LOC will start archiving previous committee proceedings – creating the first one-stop shop for House committee video content.
