What is Congress Sending the President?

Want to know what Congress just passed and sent down Pennsylvania Avenue?

You can keep track through  In the V-mail room at the Pentagon
THOMAS.  There is a Bills Presented to the President RSS feed and email alert.  It lists bills that have passed both the House of Representatives and Senate and have been sent to the White House for the President’s decision on whether or not to sign the legislation.

A recent example is H.R. 6080 (Making emergency supplemental appropriations for border security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, and for other purposes).  I received my Presented to the President email alert for it yesterday evening.  The House agreed to it on Tuesday, and the Senate passed it by unanimous consent yesterday.

There is a lot of legislation debated and discussed by Congress each session.  Only a select number of bills make it through and get sent to the president.  Let THOMAS help you keep track!
