Best Web Sites on Capitol Hill
For the second year, the Congressional Management Foundation has reported on the web sites created by members of Congress and their staff. Called the 2007 Gold Mouse Report, the report itself is well written, with insights into what makes a good congressional website, e.g., easy to use and navigate, Section 508 compliance, information on how Congress works and what it is doing, what you (as a Congressman) is doing, how to find help with a problem a constituent has, press releases/public speeches/articles, information about your state/district, and a variety of ways to communicate.
How did Texas fare? Each category had about 35 winners, so:
- Gold winner: Senator John Cornyn
- Silver winners: Representative John Culberson and Representative Nick Lampson
- Bronze winner: Representative Michael C. Burgess
