Very proud about OpenCongress

Unitarian Universalist minister, blogger and Amazing Friend Victoria Weinstein broke character at her Beauty Tips for Ministers blog today about, in her words, “the war on women being fought right now in Congress.” She cited HR 3 and the amendment introduced by Indiana congressmember Mike Pence to defund Planned Parenthood.

I’ll put on my nonpartisan hat — for the moment — because she cited OpenCongress for the text of the legislation, and that project is supported by the organization I work for, the Sunlight Foundation. Excuse me for the obvious and interested pride, but I think OpenCongress is an amazing resource for those who need a one-stop site for national legislation and I invite my readers to create an account and use it deeply.

While I’m at it, I want to note the newer state-level project, OpenGovernment, which currently does the same thing with a few states, including one that’s much in the news right now: Wisconsin.
