Want to take a close look at the much-ballyhooed balanced-budget legislation churning through Congress? Just click onto the web.
A new Internet resource center launched Wednesday contains not only the budget legislation, but also reams of information about the House -- from members' financial disclosure statements to historical data and archives.
"This creates a whole new world," said House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., who helped dedicate the Legislative Resource Center in a converted storage room beneath the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building.
The center combines the functions of several previously separate offices, including the House Library, the Office of the House Historian and the House Document Room, to provide one-stop shopping for information about the House of Representatives.
Visitors also can conduct research in person in the office in a converted storage room beneath the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building.
