GovTrack 2.0

Josh Tauberer has announced changes to his wonderful GovTrack website and service.

  • We’ve made a few “tweaks” to GovTrack, by Josh Tauberer, GovTrack blog, (March 19, 2012).

    …there are some things missing from GovTrack 2.0 that were in the old site, and if you need them you can still find them for now at http://legacy.govtrack.us, which continues to run the old site. I apologize for discontinuing some features, such as information on amendments, but with the site’s tiny budget I’m just not able to keep everything running at once…

  • GovTrack.

    GovTrack helps you find the status of U.S. federal legislation, voting records for the Senate and House of Representatives, information on Members of Congress, and congressional district maps.

    Much of the information shown on GovTrack is assembled in an automated way from official government websites. primarily the website THOMAS which is the official website for the status of legislation run by the Library of Congress.
