With Democrats taking control of the House, we at GovTrack expect to see much more active congressional oversight of the executive branch starting in 2019. For this reason starting next year GovTrack plans to greatly expand our coverage of oversight activities such as committee hearings and ethics investigations. We expect Congress to expand on investigations of Russian interference in elections, mismanagement in the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the citizenship question on the 2020 census.
We will be adding a new oversight section to GovTrack featuring:
- A list of current ongoing congressional investigations
- Members, committees, and legislation relevant to those investigations
- Summaries of the investigations
- Links to key documents
- A new tracking tool for email updates on congressional oversight
What would you like to see from coverage of oversight activities? Your suggestions will help us tailor our coverage to be as informative as possible
