The Senate just voted 27 to 13 in favor of a memorial that requests the Legislative Council make arrangements start streaming Senate proceedings on the internet beginning next year.
Back in 2005 Sen. Mark Boitano, R-Albuquerque, successfully carried a bill that appropriated $75,000 for webcasting of the Senate. But Boitano said the council has not yet directed its staff to solicit bids so webcasting could begin.
Sen. Joe Carraro, R-Albuquerque, in supporting the bill joked that the main reason he's running for Congress is so he can be on C-SPAN.
It's not clear what affect this memorial will do, but maybe next year the Legislature will be streaming live.
