All News Releases
All members of the media who plan to provide coverage of the legislative session
need to register with the LSO. LSO will provide each registered member of the media
with an identification badge, which allows admission to designated areas in both
the Senate and House Chambers when the Legislature is in session. The media identification
badge must be worn and visible to access the chambers during session. Registration
and credentialing are not required to cover legislative committee meetings during
the interim. This credentialing process is outlined in the Management Council Credentialing
Conditions and Criteria Policy below.
