The Congressional Record

The United States Congress has become one of the most ineffective bodies of our government. The approval rating for both houses of the Congress is abysmal. Most of us couldn’t care less about most of the bills passed or rejected by these folks (unless they affect us directly like SOPA). But those who are studying the world of political science need to be more familiar with the ins and outs of everything going on in this body of the government. The Congressional Record app for iPad contains documents and information you need to be familiar with for your studies.

The Congressional Record uses the data provided by the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Office of the Secretary of the Senate, and the Government Printing Office to keep you up to date with the bills and resolutions considered in both the House and Senate. You can browse editions by date or search through them by keyword. You can always send documents to yourself by e-mail or to a PDF reader.

The Congressional Record contains the debates, proceedings, and activities of the U.S. Congress. Most of us probably don’t care about most of these as the approval ratings for both houses of the Congress are super low these days. But this app offers value for political science students and anyone else involved in the this world.
