Colorado Legislature on Web, cable

DENVER ” Wags are calling it ZZZZ-span, but legislators took their session to the Internet and a local television on Monday, hoping Coloradans want to know more about how the Legislature works.

House Speaker Andrew Romanoff, D-Denver, called it “Colorado Open House.” It’s on the Internet at when the Legislature is in session and on Comcast Digital Cable Channel 165.

The sessions will be archived, in the event anyone wants a replay.

“Our goal is to make Colorado’s government the most transparent, the most accountable, the most citizen-friendly in America. Too many citizens just don’t have the time to come to the Capitol in person, so we’re bringing it home,” Romanoff said.

Monday’s session focused on Martin Luther King Day, with a round of speeches from the floor. Romanoff said lawmakers hope to extend coverage to committee rooms and to the Senate.
