Videos focus on Kentucky General Assembly, legislative issues and state lawmakers
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 4, 2016) — The Legislative Research Commission (LRC) has launched an official channel for You Tube for Kentuckians to stay connected with the State Legislature. The channel, “LRC Capitol Connection,” provides on-demand videos focusing on the Kentucky General Assembly, legislative issues and state lawmakers.
“Capitol Connection is one of many new strategies we are developing at LRC to promote participatory democracy and engagement,” said LRC director David Byerman. “While we are nonpartisan on the important issues that come before the legislature, we are advocates for participation in the legislative process itself.”
LRC Capitol Connection’s inaugural video focuses on the history of the LRC and its development into a nationally recognized agency capable of providing administrative and research support for a legislature that, over the course of decades, asserted itself as a coequal branch of government
On Tuesday—the first day of the General Assembly’s 2016 session—a video will debut that tells the story of the historic renovations that have taken place over the past year in the Senate and House of Representatives chambers.
Throughout the 2016 legislative session, LRC Capitol Connection will feature videos that provide updates on legislative action and share lawmakers’ views on the issues under consideration. The channel will also feature educational material and videos to keep people connected to their lawmakers’ work at the State Capitol.
