Website devoted to tracking Congress. Track pending legislation, member and committee activities, or subjects with a tracking tool.
Has a great subject tool.
The official site for information about Congress. It offers current and historical information about Congress, its legislation and public laws. Includes the texts of bills and public laws, committee reports, roll call votes, the Congressional Record and more. Includes current and retrospective Congresses.
Less helpful than Govtrack.us as you have to know the exact content of the bill to search. There is no broad subject listing.
Find Pending State Legislation
Illinois General Assembly Legislation Page
See pending state assembly and state senate bills.
There is a keyword search box on the left.
Searching "Environment" seems to be too broad - you get mis-hits, like "household environment."
Try searching something more specific, like "Chicago River" or "Recycling"
