Senate Committee Hearings and Events

Senate committee hearings and other Capitol events are posted to this page soon after they are announced, and removed at the end of the day. You are invited to revisit this page often for the most current version. For links to individual Senate committee websites, please visit the Senate's Committee portal.

For live, streaming video broadcasts of committee hearings and other events within the Capitol complex you may visit the Senate Live Video Broadcasts page. Official Senate hearings and events are archived and can be accessed from the Senate Audio/Video Archives page or from the individual committee pages.

Events listed on this page will be carried live on the Senate Live Broadcasts page unless otherwise noted. Due to technical limitations, out-of-town committee hearings and "desk meetings" held on the Senate floor can not be carried live. For such events, audio recordings will be posted to the main Audio/Video Archives, as well as the relevant committee pages, as soon as possible.

A complete Senate room reservation schedule may be be found at www.roomsched.senate.texas.gov.
