New Online Resource for Tracking Congress

We just heard about a useful new resource for citizens to keep track of what’s happening in Congress. OpenCongress.org makes it possible for anyone to get the big picture when reading about a bill, Member of Congress, or an issue area, and to track developments easily by subscribing to RSS feeds. OpenCongress brings together, for the first time in one place, all the best information about what’s really happening in Congress: official government info from THOMAS, made available by GovTrack.us; news articles from Google News; blog posts from Technorati and Google Blog Search; campaign contribution information from OpenSecrets.org; and more. The website creators hope to focus effective public scrutiny on the bills that are most important, expose corruption, and help make the Congressional process open to everyone.
