Political junkies who don't have time to spend all day at the Capitol can watch the Texas legislative session unfold from behind a TV or computer monitor.

Here's how you can do it:

City of Austin TV will broadcast the Texas House of Representatives on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and weekends.  Travis County TV will broadcast the House on Thursdays and Fridays.

If House sessions conflict with City Council meetings or other important broadcasts on Channel 6, the broadcasts will be replayed when the House is not in session or on Thursdays through Sundays.

Texas Senate Sessions will be shown on Austin Independent School District TV.
