Reopen the House to C-cameras. SPAN’s

C-SPAN camera operators once again controlled the video feed and projected static images of the dais. Citizens watching at home saw less of what was happening on the floor of the House. Government employees should be allowed to control the feed in the people’s House, too. Since 1979, leaders in both parties have rejected requests for more transparency and independent cameras. Now, bipartisan range of lawmakers is calling for changing the rules to allow this. Susan Swain wants C-SPAN to be able to freely cover House floor proceedings on behalf of networks.
