Members by Interest

About Members by Interest

This tool enables you to gain insight into what members of congress are interested in by seeing what sorts of bills they sponsor and cosponsor. Bills and Resolutions are indexed using a couple of dozen broad Policy Areas in addition to several hundred more narrow Legislative Subject Terms. Sponsoring or copsponsoring a bill not only indicates support for that particular measure, but is also a powerful signal of a member's engagement with the topics that the measure is intended to address.
