New Leadership, new House web site

As most of you know the Democrats are now in the majority in both the House and the Senate. The House now has a new home page to go with a new leadership. All the information is still there, but the interface has changed. So here is a brief overview of the web site:

There is a list of representatives and committees on the top. There is also my favorite feature, a search by zip code to find out who your representative is. If you want to contact your representative to express your opinion on any of the legislation coming in the next few weeks, check out this page, which also lets you search for your representative and takes you directly to their comments page if they have one.

The center of the page contains links to legislative resources, such as the schedule for the week, U.S. Code, Congressional Record, or Roll Call votes.

On the sidebars you will find links to particular offices in the House, such as the Clerk of the House, as well as fun features, like Kids in the House and the local weather forecast.
