Great app, one suggestion.
Is there a way to add to the "About" page for the individual congressman or congresswoman a "start date of service"? It would be nice to now how long some of these people have been serving.
Surprisingly easy to use and intuitive. It should make it much easier to keep tabs on who is proposing / voting for what in Washington.
Well designed and useful
A great way to learn more about what your elected officials are doing.
