If I cover today's sessions, I will embed the audio here at the top of this post.
The current session of the North Carolina General Assembly is underway. Both NC Senate and NC House will be in session today, as well as rules committees of both houses, details of which are posted below.
The NC General assembly has also introduced a new feature called the Chamber Dashboard that allows citizens to follow what is going on in the chambers in real time. So, instead of having to refer back and forth to the PDF from their website, they will be posting the info on screen for you. This will greatly simplify following the action while the General Assembly is in session!
Access to the Senate Chamber is via the top left tab and the House Chamber is via a tab on the upper right. Now, all they need to do is add tabs to access the live audio on the same page and add live video streams...and we'll really be able to watch over the shoulders of our legislators as they go about our business.
If you cannot listen to these meetings live, check back later to see if I have. If I have, I'll post the audio (and a download link) for the meeting in the calendar. You can also follow what is happening in the NC General Assembly by keeping an eye on the hashtag #ncga on Twitter.
If I haven't been able to listen, please check Voter Radio. You should already be subscribing to their podcasts anyway. I do. ???
