Legislative Research Commission Launches YouTube Channel


The Legislative Research Commission has launched its first official YouTube channel, adding another way for Kentuckians to stay connected with their state legislature.

The channel ‘LRC Capitol Connection’ provides videos focusing on the Kentucky General Assembly, legislative issues and state lawmakers.  

LRC Director David Byerman says it’s one of the new strategies under development to promote participatory democracy and engagement.  


“While we are nonpartisan on the important issues that come before the legislature, we are advocates for participation in the legislative process itself," said Byerman.

As part of this strategy, Byerman recently started his own Twitter feed @DirectorLRC.

LRC Capitol Connection’s first video focuses on the history of the LRC.  

Throughout the 2016 legislative session, the channel will feature videos providing updates on legislative action and share lawmakers’ views on issues under consideration.  

Tuesday, on the first day of the General Assembly’s 2016 session, a video that tells the story of the historic renovations that have taken place over the past year in the Senate and House of Representatives chambers will make its debut.

The channel will also feature educational material and videos to keep people connected to their lawmakers’ work at the State Capitol.
