As the first third of the year draws to a close, I thought it would be nice to take a look at the metrics for a few different resources on Congress.gov and the Law Library’s website. I find it helpful, when thinking about how to update and improve our website, to review what gets the most attention from our users.
- H.R.213 [114th] – Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2015
- H.R.240 [114th] – Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015
- S.1 [114th] – Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act
- H.R.83 [113th] – Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015
- H.R.378 [114th] – Responsible Body Armor Possession Act
