Congress.gov May 2022 New, Tip and Top

In April, Andrew wrote about the addition of Alerts to member pages so users can be notified when a member in whom they are interested has sponsored or cosponsored a bill. This month, we are releasing another enhancement to Member pages.

Now users can directly access their member’s contact information in Congress.gov. simply by clicking on the Contact button on a member’s page.

Enhancements

Enhancement – Members – Contact Link

Enhancement – Committee Profiles – Alerts

Committee profile alert emails now separate committee meeting announcements from committee hearing transcript updates so you can readily see meeting details.

Congress.gov Tip

Congress.gov has a multitude of Search Tools and extensive documentation on these Search Tools. One of my favorites are the Search Operators, which include terms used in Boolean searching such as “AND,” “OR,” and “NOT.”
