Bills contain big ideas for changing the American government and society. And since our society is a pretty complex place, it often takes complex language and complex terminology to express these ideas.
We break bills down into plain language that you can read and understand.
No paragraph-length sentences. No legalese or specialized terms, unless they’re paired with a good definition (link verbiage to the glossary!)
No linguistic summersaults.
Just. Straightforward. Words.

Think of it like CliffsNotes. Because democracy should be accessible to all. Become a patron and help us maintain our extensive legislation library.

We’re creating digestible data of D.C. doings to help raise the political I.Q.!

But that's not all...

Holding your representatives accountable starts with knowing what they represent. Which is why we don’t stop with the legislation library. Each entry in our library notes the authors and sponsors of a bill, and, if it has been passed into law, how the votes split.

Click on your representative’s name, or search for your state’s reps. It’ll bring you to their trading card. Think of this like a baseball card. Quick summaries tally up what bills they have authored, sponsored, and how to get a hold of them.
If you aren’t familiar with the other bills on their card, refer back to our legislation library. These trading cards also have information about what organizations donate to your representatives.

And when the next elections come, you’ll know who you’re ready to trade out. Become a patron and help us stack the deck in your favor.

As a Patron, you have access to this information so you can learn, share and be involved in our US government in an educated and informed way.
