About ResourceDisciplines & LevelContent TypeUsage Rights/Copyright


C-SPAN is a public service created by the American Cable Television Industry. They provide live gavel-to-gavel proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and to other forums where public policy is discussed, debated and decided––all without editing, commentary or analysis and with a balanced presentation of points of view. As part of their mission they provide elected and appointed officials and others who would influence public policy a direct conduit to the audience without filtering or otherwise distorting their points of view.
