Webcasting the Tax Committee?

I was off Thursday so I didn't watch the webcast of the Balanced Budget Task Force meeting in Farmington.

Apparently nobody else did either.

One lobbyist I know told me, " ... you could sort of hear the meeting by phone but I don't think that they ever got the video up and going."

Tax and Revenue Department spokesman confirmed that the video never worked during the meeting. "But people could hear the meeting and see the presentations." He was referring to various reports on the task force's Web site.

Mahesh said the task force will attempt to webcast the final meeting, which starts 1 p.m. Thursday at Santa Fe Community College.
