Colorado House of Representitives to be Televised

Legislative leaders are moving ahead with plans to televise the Colorado House of Representatives starting in January.

Floor debates in the House will be carried live through a Comcast Cable Channel and through the internet under a plan approved Wednesday by legislative leaders. Legislators say the decision helps bring the legislature into the 21st century, and 34 states have similar programs.

The house channel will be called ``Colorado Open House.''
