House E&C Revamps Website


The House Energy & Commerce Committee Republican majority has remade its Website, in what it says is an effort to help the public get better and faster information on issues under the committee's jurisdiction, which prominently includes communications.

"Our new Website is a one-stop shop for both the American public and members of the press to easily access the committee's business, such as hearings and votes, videos, relevant news articles and analyses on issues within the committee's jurisdiction," said E&C chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.).

The new look has lots of white space and instead of red, white and blue, adds orange, purple, and green to the mix.

Pages are now organized by issue, with a new "Hearings and Votes" section about upcoming meetings to discuss and mark up (amend and vote on) legislation.

The information is now easier to share on social networks, committee leaders say.
