Reintroducing OpenCongress: Now From The Sunlight Foundation

“OpenCongress, the site that enables anyone to follow and explore the activities of Congress, is now proudly operated by the Sunlight Foundation. The Participatory Politics Foundation originally launched OpenCongress in 2007 and built it into a leading comprehensive, nonpartisan source for legislative information used by millions. Today, the Sunlight Foundation unveils the next stage for the project with refreshed code and a continuing commitment to build on the strong core functionality. The importance of providing this information freely and reliably to the public are the goals that led Sunlight to be a founding and primary supporter of the site. Those ideals continue as Sunlight adds new data and features that empower citizens to learn more about and engage with their government.” (via Sunlight Foundation Blog)
