Federal Governance

  • FirstGov
    Gateway to all parts of the federal government. Though it features the Executive Branch, FirstGov includes the Judicial and Legislative Branches as well, along with links to states and localities. (If you don’t know exactly where you need to be, this is a great first stop.)
  • The White House
    Covers activities, responsibilities, and documents involving the President and Vice President.
  • THOMAS — U.S. Congress on the Internet
    The best way to track bills going through the U.S. Congress, and a fine way to locate and contact senators, representatives, committees and subcommittees.
  • U.S. Judicial System
    Connects to the Supreme Court and other federal courts, to significant court opinions, to the U.S. Code, and to the Code of Federal Regulations.
