New Widget: put text of bills w/features on your web site.

An excellent new tool from Josh Tauberer, creator of GovTrack.us: POPVOX.

Bill text widgets are available on www.popvox.com, which aggregate information about pending bills and let individuals weigh in with a message that is delivered to Congress. Every pending bill is available on POPVOX — from health and energy, to defense, jobs, and the environment.

The bill text embed includes a keyword search and section-by-section table of contents created by POPVOX. To embed the bill text widget, just visit the POPVOX page for any bill, click the tab to “view bill text” and select “embed” from the menu bar at the bottom.

Here is an example: S. 1549: American Jobs Act of 2011:
