Bill Calls for TV Cameras in Supreme Court

Supreme Court proceedings, long kept out of the view of most Americans, would be televised under a bipartisan bill approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Justices have long opposed TV cameras in their courtroom, saying they would be disruptive.

But backers say such coverage would help provide public scrutiny.

On a vote of 11 to 7, the committee sent the measure to the full Senate for consideration. The committee approved a similar bill last year, but it failed to become law.
