Reported in the AALL Washington E-Bullletin here:
“The House Ethics Committee investigates and makes recommendations on the enforcement of House ethics rules. The committee also publishes its reports online, but only in PDF format. Thanks to the Sunlight Foundation, AALL’s 2009 Public Access to Government Information Award winner, you can now search documents in an easy-to-use online database.”
This search tool includes all “documents and statements published online by the House Ethics Committee between 12/24/1998 and 7/24/2011” (which were only online in PDF format and not easy to search or sort. These documents are now searchable by name or keyword. You can access the tool here.
