Gaetz Proposes Bringing C-SPAN Cams Back To House Floor

New amendment would give C-SPAN permission to broadcast proceedings, similar to contentious House speaker vote

  • Florida Representative Matt Gaetz is introducing an amendment that would require the House speaker to permit C-SPAN to broadcast floor proceedings with a minimum of four cameras.
  • Unlike during the contentious speaker election, cameras are typically fixed on the dais and under the control of the House Recording Studio, whose footage is used by C-SPAN.
  • C-SPAN was reportedly allowed to record the proceedings of the speaker vote, but some have signaled support for making it a permanent fixture.
