GovTrack, which helps US citizens find and track bills in US Congress, and understand representatives’ legislative record, is one of the world's most visited government transparency websites, with eight million users in 2013. It was founded in 2004 and has been a pioneer within the open government movement – to make data a national asset, government more transparent and effective, and to empower citizens to participate in governance and their communities. The site has served as a model for legislative transparency websites around the world.
