RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Most of the committee hearings at the Virginia General Assembly will now be live-streamed and archived.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (goo.gl/yXp5s7) that a progressive advocacy group plans to record about three quarters of the committee hearings during this year’s legislative session.

Though most states and many local governments have video recordings and archives of committee hearings and other meetings, Virginia is a holdout.

Progress Virginia said it has 17 paid legislative fellows to carry out the new project and said it will help make the General Assembly more transparent and accessible to the general public who can’t make it to Capital Square.
