Creating Congress.Wiki

It started with a general curiosity for what my State's Senators do.

  • What bills do they introduce?
  • What do they vote for/against?
  • What are they working on now?

This lead me to Congress.gov the official government website for the United States Congress.

Although the website worked, it was not so easy to use.

  • Where do I start?
  • Which search do I use?
  • Why so many links?
  • Did I click that button?
  • No icons?

This is why I decided to create

Congress.Wiki

A modern view of the United States Congress
