This is a Node.js wrapper for the GovTrack data API created by Mark Guerra. It contains guides to add bill, co-sponsorship, person, role, and voters features into applications. Initially, GovTrack was created by Joshua Tauberer with the goal to offer open access to parliamentary tracking at no cost.
Do you want to use the power of open APIs and mashups to help make the US Congress more accountable, interactive and transparent? If so, then you'll want to enter the new Apps for America Mashup Contest from the good folks at the Sunlight Foundation. Like last year's Mashup Congress contest, this is another notable competition from Sunlight, whose nonprofit mission is to help organizations use Internet technologies to make information about Congress and the federal government more accessible to the American people to create a "catalyst for greater political transparency and to foster more openness and accountability in government."
