Abstract:

Statement prepared for presentation before the Joint Committee on Congressional Operations, April 10, 1974. The author testifies that Congress needs greater access to broadcast television not only to help restore the constitutional balance of power with the Executive branch but also as a step toward better communication with the American people. Congress should look beyond the present structure of mass communications toward new developments--communication satellites, cable television, and home video recording--which may significantly change the ways in which people obtain and use information. A television and radio service for Congress would cover floor deliberations and committee hearings, provide a direct video and audio feed to commercial and public television subscribers, and record events on video and audio tape for later use. It also would expand the facilities available to individual Representatives and Senators for taping reports to their constituents.
