GovTrack is a customizable "nexus of information" about the United States Congress, one that follows the status of legislation and the activities of U.S. senators and representatives.

As its name suggests, GovTrack tracks legislative events and categorizes them into thousands of subjects, so that users may subscribe to follow only the events that interest them. For instance, registered users may monitor such events as the status of specific legislation, speeches of members of Congress on the House and Senate floors, voting records, campaign contribution summaries, and other public information. Users may then elect to have the results delivered to their e-mail accounts or RDF/RSS feeds, either daily or weekly.
