Bill Track 50
is a website where you can easily track a legislator or a specific bill. You can use the search box to enter terms contained in bills (make sure you put quotes around phrases). You can click on any bill number and you’ll be taken to that bill’s page. Notice the tabs across the top showing all the available information. Click on any bill sponsor’s name to get info about that legislator.
Quote we’re pondering –
“If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?” -Rabbi Hillel
Have a wonderful weekend, all!
