Congress.gov

Congress.gov is the online database of United States Congress legislative information. Congress.gov is a joint project of the Library of Congress, the House, the Senate and the Government Publishing Office.[1]

Congress.gov was in beta in 2012, and beta testing ended in late 2013.[1] Congress.gov officially launched on July 5, 2016, superseding THOMAS,[2][3][4][5] the Library of Congress's original online database of congressional material, which had been launched in 1995.[6] The website was created by Library of Congress employees using the Solr open-source search platform.[3]

In fiscal year 2015, the Library of Congress reported 36 million page views for Congress.gov.[1]
