The innovative new Congress app for Android aims to empower citizens through technology, allowing users to track congressional news and activity. Keep tabs on members of the US Congress with pertinent information such as voting records, news feeds and bill sponsorship.
Congress, freshly out of beta, was developed by The Sunlight Foundation, a non-partisan, non-profit organisation dedicated to government transparency and accountability, and it’s available as a free, completely open source download. “We are committed to improving citizens’ relationship with government and building better tools for valuable engagement,” explains Tom Lee, who oversaw the app’s development.[imgclear]
