Media Credentialing

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.
