In probably one of the biggest storms to hit the House of Representatives and the US Senate, Legistorm.com is even being charged with burglarizing homes to obtain information. Here is what they say they are:
LegiStorm launched in September 2006. Our web site is dedicated to providing a variety of important information about the US Congress.
Based on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, LegiStorm's first information product was a database of congressional staff salaries but we have now added other valuable information, such as the most comprehensive database of all privately financed trips taken by members of Congress and congressional staffers.
The information is provided in a strictly factual, non-partisan fashion. We have no political affiliations and no political purpose except to make the workings of Congress as transparent as possible. We expect this resource to be useful to journalists, researchers, lobbyists and current and would-be staffers - as well as regular citizens who simply want to know how their representatives spend public money.
You can be sure that there are more such legislative resources to come from LegiStorm. You may register for updates by subscribing to our newsletter to learn when we launch major new features on the site or when we update our congressional salaries data.
BACK TO MY COMMENTS: I was shocked to learn how much Rick Larsen is paying two staffers in his office in Washington: WOW!
Bjornstad, Jeff and Johnston, Kimberly D are being paid more than Rick Larsen. HMMMMMM!
Gee look up your Congressman and get the inside dope!
