US House Resources

For those interested in following the happenings of the House (and Tim Walberg) more closely, here's a list of good resources. I'll be using these quite a lot, I suspect.

U.S. House Digest - An independent, nonpartisan blog offering summaries of the activities of each day.

Clerk of the House Floor Summary - A minute-by-minute diary of activity on the House floor. (Also, the Office of the Clerk's main website, here.)

The Daily Whipline - From new Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC), a daily listing of votes, a timeline for debate, and information on bills.

The US Congress Votes Database by the Washington Post - A massive database of every vote by every member. Includes:
  • Timothy Walberg - A page dedicated to Walberg's voting activity.
  • Key Votes (Walberg) - A page listing how Congressman Walberg votes on important legislation (so far, there have been no key votes).
  • Vote Missers - A table showing how many times each representative has failed to show up to vote (so far, Walberg has not missed any votes).
  • 110th Congress: Bills - A list of bills introduced in the House.
Democracy is worthless if the citizens don't pay close attention to what their representatives are doing. This blog will try to provide information on Congressman Walberg's activities, but if we miss something (or you don't trust our analysis), these are the resources for educating yourself.
