A new website was launched by the Congressional information services company Gallerywatch.com, called USCongress.com. The site, whose content and sources will expand in upcoming weeks and months, is already a significant resource for government documents on a wide range of issues associated with Katrina, both before the disaster and its aftermath. The site is focused on providing up-to-date access to essential government documents, including otherwise hard to locate CRS reports, federal agency and state press releases, the text of legislation introduced in response to the disaster, letters to the President from Senate and House leaders, as well as commentary from Congress Daily, the Energy Daily, and transcripts supplied by the Federal News Service. All of this information is available free, currently offers three RSS feeds, and will no doubt be an invaluable monitoring tool for researchers.
