House Clerk’s new website

clerkIf you are used to the previous website to keep up with the proceedings of the House of Representatives or to view public disclosures, you may find the new website (July 2020) confusing.

You can now find the floor summary for the last session at

https://clerk.house.gov/FloorSummary#FloorProceedings

The summary was presented with the earliest actions at the top. The summary is now reversed with the latest actions at the top. There is an icon at the top right for changing this.

To view the floor proceedings for other dates, chose a date on the calendar. You can view the results of votes by clicking on the roll number as before. Votes can also be seen in a different format by searching for the bill number. Alternatively, votes are found here: http://clerk.house.gov/cgi-bin/vote.asp?year=2020&rollnumber=162

You can browse financial disclosures at:

https://disclosures-clerk.house.gov/PublicDisclosure/FinancialDisclosure#Search

I have found no link to this data on the clerk’s website: clerk.house.gov.

You can browse foreign travel filings at:

https://disclosures-clerk.house.gov/PublicDisclosure/ForeignTravel

The format isn’t convenient and the data won’t be up to date.

You can view gift travel filings at:

https://disclosures-clerk.house.gov/PublicDisclosure/GiftTravelFilings

To search, choose the search option from the menu at the left side of the page.

On the whole, I find the new site less convenient than the previous site. Hopefully they will improve it.
