The Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network broadcast its first House proceedings in 1979 and added Senate coverage in June 1986.

The resolution, which lists numerous C-SPAN landmarks, states that the House “recognizes that for 25 years C-SPAN has met, and continues to meet each day, its mission of providing the Members of the House with a direct, unfiltered conduit to the American people on whose behalf they go to work every day, and in turn has provided direct access for the American people to their elected officials through call-in and other programs.”
