Last month Margaret shared the update to our Committee Profile pages that added new links to our Committee Schedule. This was one in a series of improvements surrounding the Committee Schedule that first launched in January. We added the next three scheduled hearings to the homepage, links from the hearing pages to the legislation or nomination that is being discussed, links from the legislation to the committee hearing, and all of the hearing pages to our search, which also enables a user to get a saved search alert on committee meetings.
