Senate launches YouTube live streams of hearings and floor sessions

The Hawai‘i State Senate is launching a pilot program to provide a live stream on YouTube of hearings and floor sessions.

News Release from Office of Sen Jarrett Keohokalole, March 4, 2020 

This year, for the first time, all hearings of the Committee on Technology are being live streamed and archived on the Hawaii Senate YouTube page, with the goal of providing additional committees in future years.

And yesterday for the first time, the Senate floor session was streamed live on YouTube for the third reading crossover bill debates.

Chair of the Technology Committee Jarrett Keohokalole (D-Kailua, Kaneohe) announced the new service with a YouTube video and said, “Technology is making it easier than ever to participate in the legislative process. Now everyone across the state can watch our committee hearings live or later whenever it’s convenient. We accept public testimony online, so you can participate from Kaneohe or a neighbor island without coming to the Capitol.”

Meanwhile, all Senate (and House) hearing and floor session videos have been and continue to be archived, unedited, at this page: “ViewPublisher

In addition, ‘Ōlelo Community Media continues to produce broadcast-quality telecasts of selected hearings during session, and televises them live on ‘Ōlelo 49 and ‘Ōlelo 53. They are also available on neighbor island cable access networks, and online at “tune-in”. The updated ‘Ōlelo broadcast schedule of upcoming hearings is posted at: “broadcasts”.
