Okla. Senate adds cameras, upgrades technology

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - People interested in peeking in on the Oklahoma Senate will have an easier time doing so with a series of planned technological upgrades.

Senate officials announced Thursday they will add high-resolution cameras to the chamber, install a new vote board and archive audio for Senate legislative sessions that can be accessed online.

The floor sessions will be streamed live on the Internet, and the camera angles will change to show the member who is speaking.

Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman says the changes are part of an effort to make it "easier and simpler for people to see the work that's being done by their senators."

Other upgrades include streaming audio and video from all committees and putting real-time committee votes online.
