Congress.gov New, Tip, and Top for December 2019

Back in November, Andrew shared that withdrawn cosponsors are now displayed on Senate Amendments in Congress.gov. The November release also brought improvements to the accessibility of search results for patrons using screen readers.  With our December release, the addition of next and previous arrows improves navigation between committee hearing detail pages. In addition, the compact view on the cosponsors tab on legislation pages makes it easy to cut and paste cosponsor information for use in other applications.

Next and Previous arrows make it easier to navigate between committee hearing detail pages on Congress.gov.
