Sen. Mark Boitano, R-Albuquerque, just made a speech about the leadership of the Senate (both Democrats and Republicans) deciding to not Webcast the floor sessions.
"My constituents want more openness, more transparency," he said. "By taking down the cameras, we're making the statement we want to be less open, less transparent."
He admitted there's no agreement about Webcasting in the GOP caucus and he believes the same is true for the Democrats.
Boitano said he's drafted a rule change to re-start the Webcasting project. He'll introduce it in a couple of days.
