Do Not Call Registry becoming permanent - Check Govtrack.US!

Click on the title to this post to view an article from Network World on a bill that just sailed through the Senate to make the Do Not Call registry permanent. The bill, which originated in the House, is H.R. 3541: Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007. The similar Senate bill is S. 2096: Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007.

This post also gives me an opportunity to introduce on OOTJ the very handy federal government website, http://www.govtrack.us, set up to follow legislation passing through the 110th (current) Congress. I hope it will continue, as it's a very handy, clear listing of the status of federal bills. The links above for each bill takes you to the web page at Govtrack.us that follows that bill. Besides telling you the stages through which each bill has passed, it also provides links to a summary, floor debates and the full text of the bill on the Library of Congress' admirable website, Thomas. Excellent site!
