Streaming problems at Tennessee Legislature ‘unacceptable’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Legislative staffers are calling video streaming problems on the Tennessee General Assembly’s website unacceptable.

The online video has been available intermittently over the last two weeks.

House Clerk Joe McCord said in an email to members on Monday that audio-video staffers have been in contact with the streaming vendor to complain about the interruptions during legislative session.

McCord said that all meetings and floor sessions are being recorded regardless of the streaming issues, and that DVD duplicates are being made for archival purposes.

Legislative leaders have long touted the General Assembly’s website as giving citizens access to proceedings even if they can’t travel to the Capitol or make it inside of crowded committee rooms.
