Zweifel Will Webcast Housing Meeting

State Treasurer Cliff Zweifel announced Tuesday that the Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) will webcast its meeting live for the first time in the board's history this Friday.
Zweifel, who chairs the MHDC, said the move has been made to increase transparency and accountability. The first webcast will serve as a test.
The meeting’s webcast will be a test for the agency as it looks for the best way to provide the service at all future meetings.

"I asked MHDC staff to look into how we could make webcasting work, and this is our first test as we learn how we can provide this service at all meetings. This is a step in the right direction of continuing to make government more transparent and continuing to build the public trust," Zweifel said.
The webcast will be available at www.mhdc.com/webcast and begin at 9 a.m.
