Monitor U.S. Congress Legislation Online

GovTrack is a Website that allows you to look up bills by issue. You can click on an issue, say Education, and a whole list of bills come up. It rates them by “prognosis” so you can ignore the ones that have only a 2% chance of passing. You can immediately see who the main sponsor is. Once you click on the bill title, you get the summary and a lists of co-sponsors.
