Kentucky Educational Television (KET) already livestreams Senate and House proceedings as well as many committee meetings. During the time that visitor access to the Capitol and Capitol Annex is restricted, KET will expand its daily online coverage to show even more committee coverage.

The Legislative Research Commission (LRC) will livestream any committee meetings that aren’t covered by KET. LRC’s livestreams will be available for viewing on YouTube.

Between the expanded coverage provided by KET and LRC, every Senate and House standing committee will be available for live online viewing, starting Wednesday.
