What's New in Version 1.5.1
* Bug fixes and performance improvements
It just helps me know more
This is one of those hidden gems. It removes the feeling that legislation is too hard to influence, too confusing, and writing legislators too hard. All that is made easier with this app. If I were a legislator, I'd want my constituents to have this. They would write me more with better knowledge.
Remember though, it is all about state level process, not national legislation.
