Reaction and Evaluation of "Today in the Legislature" by Legislators, Capital Press and the Public.
LeRoy, David J.; Wotring, C. Edward
A survey was conducted to ascertain the reactions of viewers and legislators to a public television series, "Today in the Legislature," which presented videotaped segments of a nine-week session of both the Florida House of Representatives and Senate. The results showed that viewers felt the program was informative, that their understanding of the legislative process was enhanced by the program, and that they learned about what their specific legislators at the capital did. Ninety-four percent of the viewers felt the series was worthwhile. Eighty-five percent of the legislators and eighty-eight percent of the journalists were in favor of continuing the program. (KKC)
