Congress.gov Launches; THOMAS On Path to Retirement

September 19, 2012
Today marks the beginning of the end of our love-hate relationship with the THOMAS database, the thing many of us use (or try to use) to figure out just what the heck is going on with legislation.

Yes, Congress.gov has been born, so get to bookmarkin'. The Library of Congress launched the new database Wednesday in its beta form, with more features coming. Right now, you can find bill text, summary and status, and profiles of Members of Congress with legislation they've sponsored or cosponsored. Oh, and the site is actually decipherable on smartphones and tablets.

THOMAS, which was launched in 1995, will still be around until all the information migrates over. And that will be sometime in the next year, according to the Library of Congress, so say your goodbyes while you still can.
