ProPublica Expands Access to Information on Congress Members

ProPublica took over Inside Congress, an interactive database to help the public keep track of who represents them in Congress, from The New York Times. It will expand the database and launch a companion one called Represent, which grew out of a Times app.

“While the original interactive database at The Times focused on bills and votes, our new project adds pages for each elected official, where you can find their latest votes, legislation they support and statistics about their voting. As we move forward we want to add much more data to help you understand how your elected officials represent you, the incentives that drive them and the issues they care about,” ProPublica’s Derek Willis states in a blog post. “The new Represent will help you track members, votes and bills in the House of Representatives and Senate. We’re also launching a Congress API, or Application Programming Interface, so developers can get data about what Congress is doing, too.”

For more information, read the blog post.
