You might have noticed a new element at the top of the list today. It is a widget that allows me to connect pages of information to the blog. These are not blog posts but will use the blog’s template to give the information a seamless feel. The first page created is a numismatic bill tracker that covers all of the bills that have yet to pass the 111th congress. It is intended to be an extension of my previous report, this page uses the information offered by govtrack.us to provide a status of individual bills.
While this page was manually generated, I am looking into automating page updates and provide notification as top when things change for the next (112th) congress.
Remember, since the Mint Does What It’s Told by Law to Do, then we should watch what is coming out of congress. After all, it is congress that passes the laws!
