Elected officials and legal experts are calling for legislation allowing cameras in New York state courtrooms days ahead of former President Donald Trump’s arraignment.  
Cameras have not been allowed in New York courtrooms since the 1950s. As Trump’s arraignment is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, many argue that rule must change.  
"The entire country is relying on us to open the doors to our courtrooms for this what may be the trial of the century,” said Assembly Member David Weprin.  
Elected officials say that they hope to get answers to this new legislation as early as this week.
