OpenCongress brings together official data on bills, legislators, committees, votes, and campaign finance in the US Congress since 2005, to provide citizens with a fully searchable compendium of all legislation, and profiles of every senator and representative. It is a non-profit and non-partisan site that helps voters to learn more about the issues they care about, connect with others with similar views, and learn how to take action. Users can search by popularity of issue, and can lodge support or opposition to specific bills.
