In the past I have posted about a congressional tracking tool called govtrack.us. Recently I came across a new site called OpenCongress.org. It uses data provided by govtrack.us to do something a little different. OpenCongress.org seems better laid out and has more of a social/web 2.0 vibe to it. This social vibe may make it easier to find current hot topics being debated on the hill. Check it out today and see for yourself. It's important that as many citizens as possible know what is going on in our government.
Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
