Watch Utah Senate Live

The Policy Pitch Blog has posted a two part series on the Utah Senate Media:

The Utah Senate is using technology to make their inner-workings transparent and open to all.   The Utah Senate now has written, audio, and video blogs by Senators, links to past senate floor debates, and the ability to sign up for text message updates on your cell phone.  They also launched Senate Tube, which provides streaming video in real time of action on the Senate floor.   There is even a camera in the Senate President’s office, continuously rolling and streaming the video online for all to see and hear.

This is a great first step by State legislatures in engaging their constituents and providing a more transparent process.

What other political bodies are using social media to improve transparency and engage their citizens?
