What's Happening in Congress This Week?

Today I thought it would be a good idea to find out what's happening in Congress this week. The simplest way to do this is by visiting the easy-to-use Library of Congress web site known as THOMAS. Here you can find out what type of legislative activity is taking place on the House and Senate floors this week. You can also find a list of the bills that have passed Congress and been sent to the president for signing. The Weekly Top Five list of bills on the home page gives you quick access to legislation most often searched for on THOMAS, such as H.R. 4173 ("Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009").

Note that you can download an RSS feed for the Weekly Top Five (and many other THOMAS features), which will allow you to learn about the latest congressional actions without leaving your own RSS reader. Finally, note that THOMAS features a link to a feature on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

If you can't find the congressional resources you need on THOMAS or the House or Senate web sites, don't hesitate to take a look at our guide.
