The Experimental Congress.gov Browser Extension Can Now Search the Compilation of Presidential Documents

This latest update to the experimental Google Chrome Congress.gov browser extension that is hosted by LC Labs adds the ability to highlight text on a page and search for it in the Compilation of Presidential Documents on govinfo. The compilation includes executive orders and executive proclamations issued after 1992. The new version of the extension can also search Congressional Research Service Reports, the United States Code, and the eCFR. After you have installed the browser extension, just highlight text on a page, click on the dome icon, and use the drop-down menu to select a collection to search.
