This week Roll Call, one of the most respected publications covering Congress and now a free site, posted "50 Richest Members of Congress," a run-down of the financial worth of the 50 wealthiest members of the legislative branch and the sources of their wealth. The results of this latest study, an annual project of Roll Call since 1990, includes a break down of financial assets and member profiles, with recent news coverage, for each of the 41 men and 9 women in this exclusive group. While the source of their wealth ranges from tech entrepreneurship to family trust funds, 18 of them hold a J.D.
Beyond this special report, Roll Call is a great source for law students and attorneys on the latest developments on Capitol Hill, unique news coverage of Congress, fundraising and seniority charts, and policy updates, with Roll Call blogs and free registration to receive daily updates on legal areas or policy issues of interest to you.
