Members of the public are being forbidden from taking live video during some public House of Representatives legislative committee meetings, and the ban will be extended to the House chamber as well, The Tennessean reports. House Speaker Glen Casada said that the decision to ban live video is up to each individual chairman to implement and to what degree. Some are responding by not banning live video at all, while others are requiring that individuals and lawmakers request permission before beginning a livestream.
