TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- There's a way Kansans could keep up with state House lawmakers as they consider various bills through the legislative session, but legislators are showing little interest in using it.

WIBW in Topeka reports (http://bit.ly/14XoYnz) that cameras are in place and ready to stream conference committee meetings from inside the Topeka capitol.

But committee chair members are opting not to flip the switch.

Republican Senate Vice President Jeff King of Independence says he's in favor of streaming video from the statehouse, but other lawmakers don't appear to have much interest.

Jim Miller is the State House information technology director. He says there is video streaming capability in the Supreme Court room, but it's only used occasionally.
