Back to Work - Senate and House Back in Session Today - Two Imporant Links!

The August recess has ended with the close of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions and the Members of Congress have come back for a furious 3 weeks of work before they break for the year (though it is looking more and more likely they will need to comeback before year's end for a 'lameduck' session to wrap up some much needed legislation).

With work beginning today, I'll start the posting of introduced bills again tomorrow. In the meantime, I wanted to share 2 websites during these important months before the Presidential elections.

The first site is - There has been a lot of misinformation, misleading info, stretching the truth and outright lies in the campaigns over past few months. Fact Check provides a non-partisan approach and looking at the facts, and nothing but the facts. They simply take speeches and advertisements from both campaigns and point out any misinformation within.

The second site is - This is the best site I have found for polling information. Each day they list national, state and local polling data for variety of sources and is great site to get feel of all the polls together. The homepage also list the days top editorials from major daily newspapers and periodicals (with links). Really an excellent resource for anyone following the Presidential race along with the Congressional races.
