Sorry if this is old news or in the wrong place but I think anyone interested in what's going on should keep this link handy: http://www.govtrack.us

It's a pretty neat little application. It allows you to track what is going on- RSS-wise - regarding bills, representatives and other bits of governmental information. This, it seems to me, has a real value to activists: they can easily find out what's going on in regards to various issues they are interested in. Very, very nice.

From their about page -- http://www.govtrack.us/about.xpd --

"There is a huge divide between citizens and government in the United
States. I'm no expert in politics, but it seems to me the larger the
divide the less responsible politicians are to their constituents, and this is bad. Worse yet, it can be avoided. We could have better government if we could only make it simpler for people to see what their representatives are doing."
