More than eight months after proposing a new website that aimed to make House of Representatives legislation and documents more readily available, the House Administration Committee launched a new website and iPad app to help do just that.

The website, docs.house.gov, will provide legislative documents in the machine-readable XML format, while the new iPad app, The Congressional Record, will provide improved access to the official Congressional Record.

The moves come several months after House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Eric Cantor, R-Va., announced that the House Administration Committee would work toward a way to publicly release House legislative data in a machine-readable format.
