Want to keep a closer eye on your state senator or representative now that the Legislature is back in session?
You can do it without traveling to the Statehouse, thanks to a new Web site that broadcasts live sessions of the House and Senate. Both the current 124th and the 123rd General Assemblies are accessible on archives at the site, www.ogtv.org. Click on Ohio Legislature Live.
Ohio Government Telecommunications is also developing a text search, so you can find action on bills of interest, and coverage of committees.
The site was developed by the Legislature, Legislative Information Systems and Ohio Government Telecommunications. You'll need RealPlayer, a free download from www.real.com, to view the programming.
