Listen in on law makers

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

If you ever wanted to listen in on the interim committee meetings of state lawmakers at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe, here’s your chance.

A live, streaming audio feed of these meetings is accessible online at www.nmlegis.gov.

Lawmakers grew accustomed to being broadcast during the 2009 and 2010 regular sessions. Last week the Legislative Council voted to begin webcasting interim committee meetings beginning July 1.

Because this year’s meetings are being held in Santa Fe as a cost-saving measure, the meeting rooms were already wired.

As with regular-session committees, the feed is audio only and will not be archived — so the public will have to listen in real time.

Rep. Jeannette Wallace, R-Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Sandoval counties presented the webcasting bill to the Legislative Council, of which she is a member, at its last meeting held a week or so ago, she said.

“There was a lot of discussion and some said it was a waste of time,” Wallace said. “But it will save time and money and allow those who can’t travel to Santa Fe to be able to listen to the meetings. It’s just audio and we understand that will be a handicap for some.”
