Don’t look for Colorado Senate on TV yet
December 22, 2008
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. ” The Colorado Senate will have to wait at least one more year to join their colleagues in the House on TV.
Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry says there’s not enough money to start rolling the cameras in that chamber. The Grand Junction Republican is a member of the managing board for the Colorado Channel.
The Senate has been wired to start transmitting but needs to raise $130,000 to go live.
Fundraising efforts by outgoing House Speaker Andrew Romanoff allowed the Colorado Channel to debut last year on Comcast Digital Cable and online, at http://www.coloradochannel.net.
House Speaker-elect Terrance Carroll of Denver says TV for the House will continue in the upcoming legislative session.
