The House is seeking feedback from member offices on ways to improve the chamber's website, House.gov, to provide Americans with better access to member offices and legislative information.
House Republicans' new House Technology Operations Team, headed by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, is leading the effort to revamp the House website and is aiming for a re-launch of the site in April, a spokeswoman said.
Chaffetz held a forum Wednesday afternoon with representatives from House offices to seek input on ways to improve the site. Offices are being surveyed on changes they would like to see to House.gov. A mockup of the new site was released at the event but Chaffetz team is not sharing it with the public yet.
"To increase transparency, efficiency, and citizen engagement, it is imperative that the House use technology to improve internal operations," Chaffetz said in a statement earlier this week after being tapped to head the new technology team.
