Recommended By Joint Committee Live Coverage Of Congressional Sessions by beln| considered for lh« In- Narthw**! Arkanwn TIMIS, W*d., Oct. 23, 1*74. FAVITTIVILLI, Aft KAN IAS u NEWS WHILE IT IS NEWS IN THE TIMES By JAY SHARBUTT · NEW YORK (AP) -- Back in 1947,' TV cameras were allowed In the House chamber to cover the. 80th Congress' opening session. Neither House lias allowed live, from-lhe-chamber coverage of its regular sessions since then. But this may be changing soon. The Joint Committee on Cong r e s s i o n a l Operations this month issued a report recommending that live radio-TV coverage of regular sessions ot both House and Senate be allowed on a one-year trial basis in 1975. It notes that while presidents have become increasingly sophisticated in the use of radio and TV, Congress "has followed an approach to communications that is essentially passive and in some instances restrictive." And it contends that ."Congress must now actively seek ways to reach and inform more people through the masf media. It suggests that Congress should try to.correct the imbalance of influence created by the ready access of presi dents to national radio and tele vision. To gel the ball rolling, the re- orl recommends that the broadcast test start as soon as possible after the opening of the 94th Congress next year. It recommends that TV coverage be kept closed-circuit for 60 days and radio coverage for 30 days to iron out whatever technical probles arise. After that, it says, video and audio feeds of the floor sessions of both Houses can be made available free to commercial and public broadcasters, for use live or on videotape in news or public affairs programs. It suggests that the com mittees supervising the test subsequently recommend to the Congress whether the system should he made permanent prior to the slart of the nation's bicentennial. It doesn't say who might run the radio operation, although a committee spokesman says it probably would be the National Public Radio system.. ' The report, which has yet to be acted on by congressional leaders, suggests they consider "inviting" I h e Public Broadcasting Service to submit proposals for setting up and oper- ating the TV system, at least during the test. No Invitation has come yet, according to Hartford G u n n Jr., head of PBS. He said the question of what his organization will do when and If it gets the invitation will be discussed by PBS' executive committee when it meets Thursday and Friday in Muncie, Ind. He said PBS, while honored Whillock Resigns Housing Position Carl Whillock, who has served as chairman of the Kayetteville Housing Authority Board for approximately six years has resigned.
