Streaming Media & Television

The California State Senate streams live video and audio from all Floor Sessions and all regularly scheduled Committee Hearings.  At any given time the Senate can stream up to 6 different events.  Two of these live streams are fully produced programs with live camera switching and graphics. The other four live streams are camera wide views from the back of the Committee Rooms. After the completion of a Floor Session or Committee Hearing, video is made available for viewing from the Media Archive page.

California State Senate video programming can also be viewed in the downtown Sacramento area through Comcast Cable's Capitol Channels (Senate on channels 91 and 92, Assembly on 93 and 94).

Only press, radio, and television representatives who have been accredited pursuant to Joint Rule 32 may be admitted to the Senate Chamber. For a list of representatives for the current legislative session please click here.
