GovTrack follows the status of all bills in Congress from introduction to enactment. Read the text of bills and see how bills change through their life cycle. You can locate bills by subject or keyword and be alerted when legislation you or your class are interested in is introduced or moves through the House and Senate.
A lot of the work of Congress is mundane. How else would you find out there is a “National Mentoring Month”?
For a class project, pick a (non-controversial) bill of interest to your class and follow it week-by-week as it works its way thru congress.
