Markup is a committee meeting when the original bill is "marked up" by amendments [changes to the original text]. Members debate and vote on the amendments before any changes are made. Mark-Ups usually end with a vote to report the bill out of committee to the full House or Senate floor for further consideration. (Congressional Glossary, The Center on Congress at Indiana University)
Some transcripts of markup meetings are available from LexisNexis Academic. Search the word "markup" and one or more keywords describing the bill; choose Source Type All News.
