The new WashingtonWatch.com site can be described as “Wikipedia for legislation,” said Jim Harper, founder of the site.
The site allows lawmakers, lobbyists, trade association officials and others with expertise on specific subjects to update wiki entries on pending federal legislation. The public can also add comments on legislation, Harper said.
In a statement, Washington Watch said it created the wiki to provide interest groups and individuals a source for the most current information about federal legislation, including the status, how the proposed laws would affect existing programs and law, the projected cost to taxpayers if passed, and pro and con arguments.
“WashingtonWatch.com provides a more user-friendly and interactive way for the public to learn about legislation than the Library of Congress site,” Harper said. “It’s all about government transparency.”
