CAPWATCH – Great information from our Legislature’s Public Access Room


Message from our Legislature’s Public Access Room

Aloha and Happy New Year!

As we approach the 2015 Legislative Session (Opening Day is Wednesday, January 21st), there is some information we would like to share:

  • The Senate Ways and Means and House Finance (WAM/FIN) committees have scheduled informational briefings over the next few weeks to explore the Executive departments’ budget requests. Most of them will be scheduled for broadcast.

o   The meeting notices for the WAM/FIN info briefings appear under “Current Hearings” in the central column of the Legislature’s homepage (

o   For video information, use the Broadcasts link in the column on the right of the Legislature’s homepage. Then select “Capitol TV Broadcasts” for the schedule of upcoming broadcasts.

o   Select “Senate Webstreaming” or “House Webstreaming” to watch previously televised events. Contact the Public Access Room (PAR) if you have any questions.

o   A link to this information currently appears under “Recent Updates” on the Legislature’s homepage, or you can find it by clicking on the “Legislative Information” bar on the right side of the page.

  • We hope to have the 2015 Session Calendar shortly, and will forward it to you as soon as it is available.

All the best in the new year, and please let us know if PAR can be of assistance!
