OpenCongress will be shutting down on March 1st. But don't worry: We're doing so for a number of good reasons. From then on, we'll be redirecting users to the excellent GovTrack, where you can continue to monitor Congress.
Make a "Bill Status" Widget
Use this page to make a widget for your web-page or blog that will display the status of a bill on OpenCongress. First, select the bill that you want to track by entering it into the text field or selecting a popular bill from the drop-down menu. If you're not sure the number of the bill you would like to track, there are a number of ways to find it here on OpenCongress: by going to the Bills page and using the options in the "sort by" drop-down box at the top of the page, or by searching for it. Next, use the form below to custom-tailor your widget to match your web-page. Then, copy and paste the HTML chunk into your web-page. It's an easy way for you and your community to track the bills in Congress that affect the issues you care about. For an example of how it looks, please see our sample.
OpenCongress allows anyone to follow legislation in Congress, from bill introduction to floor vote. Learn more about issues you care about and connect with others who share similar views.
