Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: August 22, 2019 09:46 AM
From: Senator Patrick J. Stefano
To: All Senate members
Subject: Streaming and Recording All Committee Meetings
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation which would require the recording of all committee meetings.

As public servants, we have a duty to ensure that our constituents, who have elected us, have access for insight into how we are serving them. An important aspect to this is insight into meetings, during which we vote on legislation that impacts them directly. Transparency is a core tenant to a good and accountable government.

It is my intention to guarantee that our constituents are given the ability to observe how their government operates. My legislation would require that all committee meetings and hearings be recorded and posted online. Additionally, when technically possible, my legislation would require these proceedings be livestreamed.

I sincerely hope that you will join me in co-sponsoring this legislation. If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact Jake Gery in my office at jgery@pasen.gov.
