TVW, the Washington state public affairs network, is offering an innovative service to citizens who want to follow public policy issues and the legislative process. This new tool, called SCOUT, allows the public to easily keep track of issues. SCOUT will track video and bill information and automatically send it to those who open a free account.
According to TVW, SCOUT offers:
- Access to tracking all TVW video and legislative documentation (bills, bill reports, amendments, etc.).
- The ability to save video, legislative documents or highlighted video clips in a personal account library.
- Options to share video, documents or highlighted video clips via e-mail, social media like Facebook and Twitter, or create formal reports.
