Are you as intrigued by what’s happening at your Capitol as we are?
We’re always looking for new ways to stay in the loop about the going-ons at the State Capitol – especially ways you can keep in the know from your home in other parts of the state.
We’ve found a few new resources over the past month that we’re eager to share with the Hub Network.
Did you know… the WV Senate has a Youtube Channel?
It was news to us when we found it! Go to the Senate Youtube channel to get videos from the Tax Reform Committee as well as a number of other presentations, press conferences and interviews with Senators past and present from the last four years.
Speaking of Youtube, the WV Legislature has a little-used youtube channel that we’ll be keeping an eye on for you.
And if you’re really into watching videos of the Legislature, keep an eye on WV Public Broadcasting’s Legislature Today youtube playlist and of course you can always stay in the loop with Hoppy Kercheval over at Talkline by radio, web or video.
Did you know…. there are facebook pages you can like to keep in the loop about the Legislature?
Just like the rest of us, the WV Legislature uses Facebook to stay in touch with its friends, neighbors and concerned citizens.
Here are some active facebook pages to keep on your radar:
- The WV Legislature: /wvlegislature
- The Joint Select Committee on Tax Reform: /wvtaxreform
- Senate President Bill Cole: /SenatePresidentBillCole
- WV Public Broadcasting: /WVPublic and the Gazette-Mail: /charlestongazettemail continue to be some of the best resources around on state policy-making. Like them to stay in the loop.
Did you know… WV Public Broadcasting is starting a TV show focused on the Legislature?
Starting January 2016, the West Virginia Channel will go live, providing full-time programming on WV culture, events, history and all the things West Virginian public tv viewers are interested in.
Most excitingly, the channel will provide “live gavel to gavel coverage of the West Virginia Legislature”, according to executive Producer Beth Vorhees.
We’re excited to watch the channel and are hopeful that Public Broadcasting will find a way to archive their videos for later viewing!
