Updates to Congress.gov Website Go Live

The October 2015 update to Congress.gov is now live and Andrew Weber from the Law Library of Congress has posted a roundup of new features on In Custodia Legis.

From the Post:

With this October update, Senate Executive Communications from THOMAS have migrated to Congress.gov. There is an About Executive Communications page that provides more detail about the scope of coverage, searching, viewing, and obtaining copies.


With this release there are two new items added to our Browse page:

  • Legislative Subject Terms
  • Popular and Short Titles (It is very interesting to see legislation reintroduced with the same name over time.)
