Keep Up With Congress In Real-Time Via Twitter, and Track Bills

Posted by Alan Childress

Policy wonks and law watchers will appreciate the fact that all sorts of action on the floors of the House 846551_us_capitaland the Senate will be blogged and tallied real-time via Twitter.  (So is Downing Street, for that matter.)  "Twitter is a free service that lets you keep in touch with people using the web, your phone, or IM."   You join to be fed updates, yet are not pre-screened with a personality inventory like eHarmony does.

Track congressional bills (even physically track them and their stages, showing pushpins on a sky view of the Capitol) using the site Where A Bill.

Also, as mentioned last week, state legislative bills and proposals (for any or all states) can be tracked on this BillFinder site, with searching by subject matter, key words, or bill number.  A useful tools for law professors and researchers.  (HatTip to Richard at EE.)
