OpenCongress.com – Source of information for bills in congress

Was researching information on the latest healthcare bill and came across this very cool website: OpenCongress.com.

OpenCongress brings together official government data with news and blog coverage, social networking, public participation tools, and more to give you the real story behind what’s happening in Congress.

OpenCongress is a free, open-source, not-for-profit, and non-partisan web resource with a mission to make Congress more transparent and to encourage civic engagement. OpenCongress is a joint project of two 501c(3) non-profit organizations, the Participatory Politics Foundation and the Sunlight Foundation.

In addition to a wealth of information on what’s happening in Congress right now,  It offers an impressive array of Web 2.0 tools and widgets that can link to social networkings, wikis, and blogs.  Really impressive.  Check it out!
