ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Supreme Court will take public comments until Dec. 17 on proposals for a pilot project on allowing news cameras in the state’s trial courts.

A court advisory committee studying the issue filed its final report last month. A narrow majority recommended an extensive study during the pilot project to try to measure the impacts of expanded camera coverage. The study would require raising at least $750,000. A minority recommended a less extensive study.

An order signed by Chief Justice Lorie Gildea, dated Friday and released by the advisory committee Monday, says the high court will consider the proposals without a hearing after reviewing the public comments on the two study options.
