I think that the information provided on OpenCongress is really awesome for those of us who are not Politcal
Scientists. It allows you to view which bills are being debated/voted on. It is almost like a web 2.0 aggregator for Congressional moves going on in
It even has a 'most viewed' bill section. Which I find very interesting that HR 333 (The Cheney Impeachment bill from April) is the third most
viewed bill. Anyway I think you all will like OpenCongress.org for it ease of use. Maybe not... But Check it out.
I had previously created a thread about this website a while ago in Above Politics, that didn't get much play. I think it is under the level of the
needs of those users, its more for the 'common ats user'... To Thread in Above Top Politics.
Great link for sure. I was watching a CSPAN show last night about the Omnibus Spending Bill -- how it's thousands of pages w/ no time for reps to
read it though, this is a good watchdog site for these sorts of issues.
I think that this website is excellent for keeping track of the bills and issues.
It makes it much easier to track what is going on, and could be an excellent resource for political science types and common person alike.
I came across Opencongress a few months ago while I was researching something and I'm now completely addicted to it. After doing a search, I found
this antiquated thread from 2007 (is 2 years old?) and I feel like this kind of service is perfect for the political league of this forum to engage
with. Give it another look please.
