SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah residents can now go online to hear legislative debates.
If residents have ever wanted to hear the discussion on Salt Palace funding or find out what lawmakers said about the midwifery bill or corporate income tax.
It's all online at www.le.utah.gov. The Web site has audio files for floor debates on all pieces of legislation listed with the bill's status.
The Legislature's information technology director, Mark Allred, says audio recordings of House debates have been online for a while. However, he says it wasn't as easy as it is now.
Now, the Senate debates have been added and the audio files are listed with each piece of legislation.
