Dear Sunlight fan,

Do you ever come across a bill or policy issue that you want to keep tabs on?

We do. Whether it’s the DISCLOSE Act and campaign finance transparency reforms in Congress, regulations affecting the Freedom of Information Act to just about anything related to greater transparency in government, we work hard to track the legislation and policies influencing our work.
 
That is why we built Scouthttp://scout.sunlightfoundation.com — a new free alert service that allows you to do just that! You can now search and create email or text alerts on legislation shaping issues you care about in Congress and across all fifty states. Scout also makes it easy to search federal regulations and what is actually said by lawmakers in the Congressional Record.
 
 
 
    
 
 
We know Scout is already working to help advocates stay on top of legislation, and want to put Scout to work for you. Attend our free webinar on Tuesday, June 26 at 1 pm (EDT) to learn more about this powerful research and tracking tool. The one-hour webinar will cover basic skills such as creating search terms and bill queries as well as advanced functions such as tagging, merging outside RSS feeds and creating curated search collections.
 
Whether you are a policy wonk, a researcher, a journalist or an activist, you can stay on top of regulations, Congress and bills in the state legislatures. Learn more and get Scouting:  scout.sunlightfoundation.com
 
Please join us for the webinar next Tuesday, June 26 at 1pm (EDT) -- register here
 
-Scott, Amy, Eric and the rest of the Sunlight team
