Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America.", I and others think it's a good idea to centralize what the goes on in the Senate (or House).
So if you see something happening on the Senate/House floor and you don't want to start a new thread to ask if anyone else just heard what you heard, you can leave a short note on who said what and about what and I'll try and find it the next day in THE RECORD. Or if you see a thread that pertains to the Senate, House, or pretty much any GOV'T agency please link your thread here.
If you have any suggestions for this thread please feel free to let me know.
Here's a few helpful links.
C-SPAN what a great thing. Where you can watch or listen live to most Government happenings.
C-SPAN 1 carries the HOUSE.
C-SPAN 2 carries the SENATE.
C-SPAN 3 (most places web only) carries a variety of committee meetings live or other past programming.
OR FEDNET has online feed also.
A great thing about our Government is they make it really easy for the public to research what the Politicians are doing and saying (on the floor anyway).
THOMAS where you can see a RECORD of what Congress is doing each day. You can also search/read a verbatim text of what each Congressmen/women or Senator has said on the floor or submitted 'for the record.' [This is where the real juicy stuff can be found.]
Also found at Thomas are Monthly Calendars for the Majority and Minority
Roll Call Votes can be found here.

Feinstein Gun Ban Could Come up in the Senate Next Week
Unfourtnetly, the yahoo's that we have sent to congress will do only what they want! They do not vote the way we want them to. The only thing I can recommend is to throw the whole rotten bunch out! They can not pass up a dollar in their pocket from any source, legal or otherwise!
I'm sure Edwards(D-NC) will have lots to say on this....Oops! he'll be too busy... ;-)
Yes, I saw some of that. Sen. Pryor did a good job, and I'll give him the credit he is due(as long as he doesn't turn around and vote against him ;-)
Clintoon live on C-SPAN on the Diane Rheme(sp?) radio show.
Rheme = Rehm
Seems I unpluged the speakers on my computer ..
Guess I'll be climbing under the desk to figure out what wire goes where
Thanks, I'll be thinking about VP Cheney. :)
Got my speakers working now .. just in time for Leahy
It's gonna be one of those days
Because they have set it up that way. They have been using this tactic for over a year. They passed a high number and percentage of low-level nominees, just to be able to do this.
I'm sure you know the old line about statistics and lies.
Oh gee .. Leahey is not talking about rape cases
