House Unveils New “Document Repository” Website

The U.S. House of Representatives is striving to make legislative information available in a more user friendly format to anyone with an interest.  The website contains two main pages — one for legislative information and the other for committee updates.  The website also includes features that will allow House Committees to post bills as soon as they are filed rather than waiting for the Government Printing Office print.  The committee updates page will include text and statements from hearings in a downloadable format.  As of yet, there is no comparable effort underway in the Senate.
