2011 Congressional Actions & Votes

As 2011 draws to a close, you may be wondering what bills passed through the 112th Congress, and what bills are still being discussed before the year’s end.

There are places to go for those needling questions.

The US House of Represtatives and The US Senate for live-stream footage of committee meetings, as well as a continually updated feed on Congress schedules and decisions.

The Washington Post also has a detailed Votes Database of the US Congress . The database traces all votes and bills going back to the 102nd US Congress.

Find out how your local representatives voted on key issues, as well as detailed information regarding those issues (who voted yes/no, didn’t vote, and what the bill concerns). You can always cross-reference the bills with the Thomas.gov Bills & Resolutions finder from the Library of Congress.
