New ways to follow the U.S. House of Representatives

The Office of the Clerk has rolled out a new search tool for live and on-demand video access to proceedings on the Floor of the House, both regular sessions and special events. The tool is called HouseLive. The Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has provided examples of how to use the tool on his website.

Speaker Boehner also pointed out a number of other ways to access House activity:

The Clerk’s office also has a new RSS feed to help you stay up-to-date with activity on the House floor. Real-time House floor summaries are already available in XML and in bulk, and the RSS feed adds another element of transparency to the legislative process.”
