Ever Wonder What Congress Is Doing?

by jim on May 31st, 2006

GovTrack.us basically takes all the information from THOMAS, the official site from the Library of Congress that tracks legislation, and puts it in a nice box with a pretty bow on it. Joshua Tauberer, the site’s creator, also pulls in a ton of other information from other sites and basically provides what I think is the best look into the activities of Congress. You can search bills by keyword, you can track voting records, etc. in a very to use interface.

Curious about the status of the Fair Tax Act of 2005? (H.R. 25) It’s in committee and looks like it’ll die in committee. It was introduced 1/4/05 and the last time anything ticked with this bomb was November 1st of last year… the Senate version is worse off, it was mentioned 1/24/05 and then referred to the Committee on Finance.

Peruse the site, it’s great.
