An appetite for either sausage or the law is said not to recommend watching how it is made, but close attention to what Congress is doing will be the topic of a training session next Tuesday presented by the Sunlight Foundation, which states:
Open Congress is a free, open source tool that allows you to explore the workings of Congress from searching for legislation, identifying popular bills, browsing voting records to finding and connecting with your lawmaker. The project, originally launched by the Participatory Politics Foundation, is now a project of Sunlight Foundation. Join us to learn more about how to optimize OpenCongress for your use, from creating issue specific widgets, comparing voting records between two lawmakers (“head to head” function), setting email alerts for federal bills and creating a user account.
Register for the 10 a.m. Pacific Time online session here.
