Gillibrand Wants Cameras In Supreme Court
Washington, DC (WIBX) - Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is calling for the Supreme Court to allow cameras in the courtroom for what promises to be the making of historic legal history.
The nation's highest court is listening to three days of oral arguments on President Obama's signature healthcare law, which requires that every American have health insurance coverage, or face penalty, by 2015.
Gillibrand says that it would strengthen democracy if everyone could see the proceedings.
The Court has rejected requests from media organizations to allow television cameras to record the proceedings, but said that an audio recording of the arguments would be available each day.
