Skip to comments.Senate Coverage -- (April '05)

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 Senate Majority and Senate Minority
And Monthly Calendars for the House Majority and Roll Call Votes can be found here.

Good morning, OXEN. I wonder what mischief they will be up to today.
It just got over.....
Thanks for the ping
Love the picture---poifect!!
I saw some of the press conference re: the judicial nominees. Part was not shown because of the Pres. presser.
I have a feeling the dems are gonna be coming back NASTY from this Easter break---
Like one of the speakers at the presser said, the dems are using a 2400 sq. ft. room, 84 employees, tv commercials to try to fight the Constitution!
I just saw the thread about the judicial nominee press conference where kristinn said he was gonna attend to advertise for the March for Justice---
I wouldn't know what kristinn looks like so I don't know if he was there, do you?
Five member delegation going to Rome on Wednesday--Bush, Laura and they will announce later who else will be in the delegation...
