I have been made aware of a great resource tool for tracking bills that have taken a vote in Congress. It is called Govit.com (http://www.govit.com/) and it really helps when looking to see what Congress voted on, who voted for what, and when it happened.
Here is the “about” section to better describe the site:
Govit empowers citizens to take action in our representative democracy. On Govit you can connect with your elected representatives. Organize and promote specific legislation.
Vote on active legislation and have your vote sent instantly to your reps. Keep a a running record of your votes compared to your reps, and others (when election time comes, you’ll know if your representatives have really represented you!).
You can also do cool things like see what legislation the presidential candidates have sponsored, or check their voting records.
Govit is a non-partisan democracy platform. It was built by a regular citizen (Taylor Norrish), and has no special interest or government backing.
Go on over to http://www.govit.com/ and take a tour. It’s a very useful site.
