St. Croix Cable TV to Air Recorded Senate Meetings

May 27, 2004 – The Legislature announced on Thursday that four Senate committee hearings held in the last two weeks will be broadcast to St. Croix on Innovative Cable TV's Channel 5 on Friday, Saturday and Monday.
The programming schedule is as follows:
10 a.m. Friday — the Economic Development, Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee hearing on May 20 on the proposed Farming and Fishing Act of 2004.
10 a.m. Saturday – the Finance Committee hearing on May 21 on Crucian Christmas Fiesta finances.
Monday (no time given) – the Health, Hospitals and Human Services Committee hearing of Wednesday on proposed changes to the Uniform Determination of Death Act.
Monday (no time given) – the Rules Committee meeting on Thursday on the nominations of Yvette Canegata-Jones to the Public Services Commission and Tyrone Seales to the St. Croix Coastal Zone Committee.
A release from the Legislature issued on Thursday noted that St. Croix residents have been unable to watch Senate proceedings live on television "since early April, when technical problems prevented broadcasting to St. Croix." It said Innovative Cable TV "is assisting the Legislature to bring these proceedings to the public while awaiting the parts needed to resume broadcasting."
