Congress.gov New, Tip, and Top – December 2023

Share this post:

In the October release, we announced that the Journals of Congress (1789-1817) are now available on Congress.gov. You can look in the Congressional Activity section on the Browse page for links to historical House (1789-1817), Senate (1789-1817), and Senate Executive Journal (1789-1875) PDFs.

With this release, you can now access committee meetings in a new Browse page, Committee Meetings by Date. On this page, meetings are broken down by month and then day. You can see how many total House and Senate meetings there were.

Another enhancement is the refinement of two filter names from Party to Party of Sponsor and Party of Cosponsor.
