More New Features Added to Congress.gov

As regular readers of this blog will already know, last year Congress.gov replaced THOMAS as the official government website for federal legislative information. Since then, the Library of Congress, which operates the site, has continued to make additions and improvements. The latest update occurred earlier this week, and includes the following new features:

·        A “Listen” feature that allows users to listen to audio files of bill summaries.
·        The addition of bill titles to legislative email alerts.
·        More appropriation tables, now going back to fiscal year 2005.
·        A “search within” feature for committee and member pages.

For a full list of enhancements included in the update, see this blog post from the Law Library of Congress.
