News Junkie: The cameras will keep rolling as negotiations over CT-N continue

The Connecticut Public Affairs Network (CPAN) is the nonprofit manager of CT-N, which provides video coverage of many events at the state Capitol and within the Legislative Office Building as well as at the Executive and Judicial branches of government. The coverage is also stored as a searchable archive of public policy decision making, and its contract with the state was supposed to expire at midnight.

But a last-minute counter offer from the organization was a request that the state continue its funding at current levels for at least the next 30 days as their offer is being considered by legislative leadership.
