The People's House

March 7, 2007
As a strong advocate for open and transparent government, I am pleased that C-SPAN is expanding access with "Creative Commons" licensing to its extensive video coverage of federal government activities.

The House of Representatives is called the People's House for a reason and as Speaker, I am committed to ensuring our government is fully accessible and transparent. This decision, along with our work to webcast committee hearings, is a solid start.

I am proud to join citizen journalists and bloggers in the rapidly expanding field of web video, and you will continue to find video coverage of what Congress is doing for the American people right here on The Gavel.
