OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma House is getting new in-house video capabilities to help increase public access to the political process.
House leaders said Monday they have hired Jason Warfe, a former television producer, as the House digital media coordinator.
Warfe will work with the nonpartisan House media department, shooting production-quality video clips to send out with member-requested press releases.
The video clips will be available to the media to use in news stories. They will also be available on a House Web site where Oklahomans can watch members personally discuss legislation.
House Speaker Chris Benge of Tulsa says adding video capabilities to the media department will further open the lines of communication between the public and their legislators.
