HARRISBURG – Senate sessions can now be watched live on nearly every type of web browser and mobile device, Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi (R-9) and Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa (D-43) announced today. Previously, the streaming video required users to have a WMV-compatible video player.
“Enabling users of iPhones, iPads and Android devices to watch the Senate in real time is another significant step forward as we continue improving the General Assembly’s new website,” Senator Pileggi said. “It’s important to make our work as accessible as possible to the public.”
“Many of the issues we address in the General Assembly, while specific to Pennsylvania, are being followed by people all over the country,” Senator Costa said. “Taking these steps to provide real-time access to view Senate sessions is an innovative approach to reaching everyone whether across the state border or half way around the world.”
Senate session can be viewed on the Senate’s website at www.pasen.gov by clicking on “Watch Session Live.” Direct links to the streaming video are:
