Congress.gov: a Powerful Tool

Capitol Building in Spring

Congress.gov is the official Library of Congress website. It succeeded the previous Congressional website, THOMAS, and is a powerful tool when gathering information about legislation.

The website can be used to read the text of bills, track legislative actions, and explore each Congressman’s legislative history.

Email alerts for legislation can be set up to notify users when “actions, bill text, cosponsors, or summaries” are updated.

There are also many additional resources to learn about Congress, the founding of America, and the legislative process.

CLICK HERE to view the Congress.gov page for the Social Security 2100 Act. There’s plenty of great information about this important piece of legislation.

You can read about how the bill “increases the primary insurance amount” of Social Security, utilizes an improved Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA), and “increases the minimum benefit amount.”
