Share this post:

Earlier this month, Andrew shared the exciting news about several significant new features that had been added to including the new Global Search bar, the addition of Committee Prints, and translation of the Overview of Legislative Process video into Spanish.

The enhancements for this month’s second release include a redesigned Congressional Record header. We have reformatted the header information on the Congressional Record pages so that the header information, including date, Congressional Record volume, and issue number, now appears as one continuous header rather than a series of stacked headers in different fonts and colors. This change has been made in response to user feedback (please feel free to share your feedback through the survey). For those of us who are concerned with citation formats, this new format is particularly useful as it means we can just copy and paste the header.
