House Committees

Up with a new page today that tracks the various House Committees and their usage of social media. What a lot of people don’t know is exactly how much of big legislation language and compromises are hashed our at the committee (and subcommitte) level. Thankfully, a lot of committes are sharing what they are working on or when the next meeting is via social media. It’s a much better resource for knowing what’s going on with pending legislation – the staffers behind a committee page will have much more ready knowledge of what is happening with a specific piece of legislation than a staffer running a Congressman’s page. Having the ability to access committee staff through responsive social media is a huge win for open government.
