Updated the House and Senate information in the Congressional Directory for miscellaneous changes to district office information, staff rosters, and biographical information.
Just playing catchup today, getting the congressional directory back up to date for all the changes over the last 20 days.
I also note that Representative Curt Clawson (R-FL) was sworn in to the House this afternoon. He was elected yesterday to fill the seat formerly held by Trey Radel (R), who resigned from the House this past January. Thanks to Jennifer Manning of the Congressional Research Service for the heads up about this swearing in.
Just a quick update to the Congressional Directory due to some House and Senate staff shuffling and House district office changes.
Updated biographical information in the Congressional Directory for a few members of the House and Senate.
Small update to the Congressional Directory to get House member district office and staffing information back in sync with Congress Merge.
Fixed typos on a few birthdates and first election dates in the Congressional Directory.
Updated the district office listings for the Senate and Committee memberships for the House.
I also added Queens, NY to the list of acceptable city names for searches. For some reason, the USPS doesn’t allow the city name, so the searches on that city would fail.
Grading final exams are over for me, so I was able to update the Congressional Directory to be back up to date with the Congress Merge data.
Added the newly assigned GOP membership of the House Select Committee on Benghazi as well as some minor Congressional directory updates.
I also added a few new cities to the cities database, which is what allows you to lookup members of Congress by city name. Few people use it, but those that do are happy it exists.
