Minnesota’s Senators Approve Bill to Televise the Supreme Court

9 Feb

As reported today in the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, among other places, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance a bill that would permit the televising of Supreme Court proceedings. There was a committee hearing on the bill in December, and if you’re really fired up about this stuff, you can watch a video of today’s vote here. If you want to track the bill yourself, you can do so here.

We here at the Void think it’s worth noting that both of Minnesota’s senators, Amy Klobuchar  and Al Franken, sit on the Judiciary Committee and voted in favor of the bill, so voice your approval or disapproval of their actions accordingly.

A similar bill  is pending in the House Judiciary Committee, which contains no representatives from Minnesota.
