Welcome Back, Congress

We’ve been busy the last few weeks prepping and enhancing THOMAS for this week.  I’ve enjoyed watching the message spread about the changes to THOMAS.  I was fortunate enough to be able to do my first radio interview discussing our enhancements from this year for the DorobekInsider on Federal News Radio.  (How many places besides Washington could have a federal news radio station?)

Congress is returning to DC after the Summer District Work Period (sometimes referred to in the media as the August recess).  That means articles are popping upup about their return to Washington.

Here are some examples of what you can look for in THOMAS:

There are many other items on their to-do list, so it should be an interesting session before the November election.

In addition to working on legislation, the Senate has started an impeachment trial against District Judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.  Porteous was confirmed by the Senate in October 1994.

Update: Added link to Library of Congress redesigns THOMAS site radio interview.
