If you think your Senators and Representatives aren't very busy, you might be in for a surprise. There are already 1,125 bills and resolutions sitting before the U.S. House of Representatives, and while some of them are relatively minor, we're sure many others will pique your interest. Here's the place where we'll keep you informed about the policies that are most important to you.
Currently, many of the bills introduced in the house don't have text. We'll keep checking and update information about as many bills as we can.
