Contacting the Congress Contacting the Congress is a very up-to-date database of congressional contact information for the 108th Congress. As of July 13, 2004 there are 522 email addresses (of which 449 are Web-based email homepages), and 539 WWW homepages known for the 540 members of the 108th Congress.

  THOMAS -- U.S. Congress on the Internet  Tracking bills in congress
Acting under the directive of the leadership of the 104th Congress to make Federal legislative information freely available to the Internet public, a Library of Congress team brought the THOMAS World Wide Web system online in January 1995, at the inception of the 104th Congress. Searching capabilities in THOMAS were built on the In Query information retrieval system, developed by the Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval based at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.  The first database made available was Bill Text, followed shortly by Congressional Record Text, Bill Summary & Status, Hot Bills (no longer maintained), the Congressional Record Index, and the Constitution (now found, along with other historical Congressional documents, under the "Historical Documents" category on the THOMAS home page). Enhancements in the types of legislative data available, as well as in search and display capabilities, have been continuously added

Hot Shot Business  Get ready for an exhilarating and enlightening adventure! “Hot Shot Business” takes a fresh approach to showing teens (ages 9-12) what it means to be an entrepreneur. The first step

 is to enter the world of “Hot Shot Business,” an Internet simulation game. Through carefully

 constructed scenarios, students gain experience with the nuts and bolts of designing and operating their own business—a skateboard factory, a comic book shop, a pet spa, a landscaping service, and a candy factory. Students are not alone in their venture. Business-savvy animated hosts, Kate and Jack, offer advice at every turn. As in real life, the decisions a kid makes about his or her business has

consequences that extend far beyond profits and losses. There are environmental factors to reckon

with (e.g., conserving water while operating a landscaping company), as well as finding ways to provide

 jobs for members of the community.
