Congress.gov New, Tip, and Top – June 2024

Share this post:

In May, Andrew announced that the Members endpoint in the Congress.gov API was updated. In addition, he mentioned that we continue to make progress on the migration of the Congressional Globe to Congress.gov and added a Debates of Congress Help page.

In this release, the Glossary of Legislative Terms is now searchable via the Congress.gov Help Center. In addition, work continues behind the scenes to improve access to the historical congressional debates contained in the Annals of Congress.

Congress.gov Tip

You can more effectively search Congress.gov by using search operators in your search. For example, if you are searching for a term that could have multiple endings, you can use an asterisk at the end of the term to return those results. For example, a search for appropriation* would return results for both “appropriations” and “appropriation.” To learn more about search operators, visit the Search Tools Page.
