Congress.gov New, Tip and Top for May 2019, Part 2

Search Tip

The Congress.gov Search Tip for this release is a reminder of how to edit highlighting in Search Results:

How to Remove Highlighting from a Search Result

When viewing search results on Congress.gov, highlighted search terms can be very helpful in understanding why a particular item was retrieved.  But what if you need a clean copy without the  highlighting?  Simply edit the URL to remove the search portion and the highlighting will be gone. Look for ?q and delete it along with all characters that follow.
