The Missouri legislature may be on the verge of joining the information superhighway. Kimberly Lohman from Jefferson City has the story.

OutCue: SOC

In an effort to make the Missouri House more accessible to the public, House Speaker Steve Gaw announced the unveiling of a new Internet site.

The system would provide consumers with imminent access to information about legislation, hearings, and members.

Actuality:Gaw
RunTime:
OutCue: productive and efficient
Contents: the House will soon be embarking on a "paper-less chamber" project to make our work in this chamber more productive and efficient.

Gaw also hopes to launch a pilot project to broadcast live House debate for classroom use. In the future, cable tv may add state legislature to their public access channels.

From the capitol, I'm Kimberly Lohman.
