For a virtual library cat, I can be kind of geeky. I LOVE prowling the web for legislative history. My all-time favorite site for legislative history research - LexisNexis Congressional - has recently been bought and undergone a name change. It is now know as "ProQuest Congressional".
You will still find it listed as "LexisNexis Congressional" under Federal Information-Legislative in the Library's Online Resources listing. We will soon be adding the new name "ProQuest Congressional."
For those tracking the latest developments in legislation on the budget, remember OpenCongress and GovTrack . Although, for the latest news developments on the possible Federal Government shutdown, nothing beats your favorite major news site, like the New York Times, Washington Post or Wall Street Journal.
