Congressional Record on your iPad

See also

Subscribing to and storing the Congressional Record once required a lot of work and a lot of space to work with.

As of Monday, it can be read on your iPad.

For non-political wonks unfamiliar with it, The Congressional Record reproduces all speeches delivered in the Senate and House of Representatives. It also includes an Extension of Remarks section. In that section, a member of the Senate or House asks for permission to revise and extend his remarks, and more complete information about a topic is placed in the Record.

The app, released by the Library of Congress, includes these features:

  • Browse editions of the Congressional Record by date: January 4, 1995 (the 104th Congress, 1st Session) to the present
  • Perform keyword searches within individual documents or sections within documents
  • Share documents via email
  • Save documents to your preferred iPad PDF reader
  • Identify the latest bills and resolutions considered daily on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives
  • Identify the latest bills, resolutions, treaties, and nominations considered daily on the floor of the U.S. Senate

The Congressional Record is published each day that either chamber of Congress is in session.

If you're serious about keeping track of Congress and taking a look at all sides of debates, this is the foremost publication for you.
