The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has enhanced the features of the Mobile Member Guide, a mobile Web application (app) that GPO released in November 2011, which provides the public with quick, easy access to information on Members of the 112th Congress. The app’s new features include:
- Official biographical information for House Members and Senators
- Contact information for House Members and Senators’ offices in Washington, D.C. and home districts
- Counties and zip codes that each House Member represents
- Links to House Members and Senators’ Web sites
These features have been added to the existing Member profiles that include their picture, party affiliation, hometown, home state, and information on their length of service. The Mobile Member Guide allows users to browse for Members of Congress by last name, state, chamber, or party.
The app is available at no charge.
