Has anyone heard of this site? www.govtrack.us
This site rocks. It's easier to navigate than the house and senate websites, and you can set up alerts to notify you when your elected reps vote on issues, as well as what and when issues are coming up for vote. It has text and pdf links to bills up for vote, breaks down who lobbied for a bill, and how much money they threw into it.
Hell, it even shows who's been absent the most (Kerry
), who's submitted the most successful and unsuccessful legislation, and who's been the most talkative.
This is a wonderful site. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out.
