NJCTA Begins Webcasting Legislature

Live coverage of the New Jersey State Legislature is now accessible via the
Web.

The New Jersey Cable Telecommunications Association is now making its live
cablecasts of the state legislature's sessions, Gavel to Gavel, available
at http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/,
via a site designed and operated by the Office of Legislative Services. The OLS
is the nonpartisan state organization that provides bill drafting and other
technical and administrative support to both the state's senate and
assembly.

'Webcasting of Gavel to Gavel is a natural outgrowth of the trend
toward providing timely information to people via advanced technologies,' NJCTA
president Karen Alexander said. 'We are pleased to provide the linkage that OLS
needs to expand the reach of this important public service to include users of
the Internet, as well as cable-television customers.'

Modeled after C-SPAN and C-SPAN2, Gavel to Gavel has been produced and
aired as a public service of the New Jersey cable industry since
1998.
