New U.S. Constitution App


Happy Constitution Day everyone!  In celebration of the day, the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, the Library of Congress, and the Government Printing Office have teamed up to launch U.S. Constitution: Analysis and Interpretation, a new app providing an annotated version of the Constitution.  It contains discussion of each clause of the Constitution, information about Supreme Court cases relevant to interpreting the Constitution, and lists all federal, state, and local laws struck down by the Supreme Court.

Users have the ability to search the entire text or browse by section.  The app also contains other helpful features including a table of contents, table of cases, and an index.  Currently, the app is available for free on iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones.  An Android version is also being developed.  For more information on the app, see the GPO press release.  To download the app, visit the iTunes App Store.
