Congress.gov New, Tip and Top for June 2019

Earlier this month, Margaret shared the news that Congress.gov now has enhanced navigation for member profile pages.

With this month’s release, the display for errata associated with committee reports has been enhanced. The Congress.gov glossary defines errata as “lists of errors in congressional publications. The corrections are printed on sheets, or pages. The errata sheets are usually tipped into the original document.” When a user performs a search that includes a committee report for which errata has been issued, the list of results will display the errata as a link associated with the report. After the user arrives on the committee report detail page, the errata is available on a tab next to the text of the report.
