Congress.gov New, Tip and Top March 2020

Last month we brought you information about new alerts for updated weekly committee schedules and the implementation of Read Speaker for bill text. For our first release this month, we have added the ability to sort bill cosponsors by name or date from the All Info view for a bill.

 

Enhancements

Enhancement – Members – Alerts

  • Member alerts now include the Member’s photograph when available.

Enhancement – Congressional Record – Daily Digest

  • Look for the Daily Digest link on the homepage to go directly to the current issue of the Congressional Record.

Enhancement – Legislation – Sort Cosponsors

Use arrows in the column headers to sort cosponsors by name or date of cosponsorship on the All Info view.

Search Tip

How to Remove Highlighting from a Search Result

When viewing search results on Congress.gov, highlighted search terms can be very helpful in understanding why a particular item was retrieved. But what if you need a clean copy without the  highlighting? Simply edit the URL to remove the search portion and the highlighting will be gone. Look for ?q and delete it along with all characters that follow.
