Congress.gov New, Tip and Top for October 2019

Robert brought us the last Congress.gov update in late September.  That update included new enhancements to the Congressional Committee Schedule page.  Legislation pages now link an associated committee’s meeting pages from the overview box. In response to user requests, the weekly Committee Schedule now has a compact/expanded view option. Chamber of Origin, House, Senate, and Joint Committee filters are now available to limit results on Committee Schedule pages.

With this release, we bring refinements to the Committee Profile pages.  Each committee profile page will include links to the daily view of the schedule for that committee.
