Sen. Brian Frosh turns OFF audio so public cannot hear discussion of Raskin bill

Right now, the Maryland Senate's Judicial Proceedings Committee is meeting.  Up until a few minutes ago the Committee hearing was being live streamed over the Internet.

The audio feed was turned off when the meeting moved on to the voting session portion of the Agenda.  We have been told that on the Agenda for discussion and a vote is Senator Jamie Raskin's bill regarding teacher/coach sexual contact with teens.

Members of the Parents' Coalition have called the Senate's Judicial Proceedings committee to request that the live feed be turned on for today's voting session.  We have been told that the decision to live stream voting sessions is made by the Chair of the committee.  For this committee, Senator Brian Frosh is the chair.  When asked why the audio was being turned off one of our callers was told "that's the way it's done."

If you would like to call and request that the audio for this Senate voting session be turned ON, call 410-841-3623 or send a Tweet to the Chair of this committee .

  3. Sen. Frosh will be at an Attorney General Candidates Forum tomorrow, Sun, March 2 if anyone wants to ask why he consistently refuses to have the audio on at the Judiciary Proceedings Committee over which he presides. The forum will begin at 9:30am, at Congregation Beth El, 8215 Old Georgetown Rd., Bethesda.
