A més, afegim una secció de confidencial amb aquelles informacions que no es publiquen en altres mitjans però que ajuden a entendre per què passen algunes de les noticies.

Countable provides users with an overview of key legislation on important issues, as well as giving voters an easy way to tell their representatives how to vote. Countable provides tools to see how those representatives vote and keep them accountable.

How Countable works?
Countable covers US federal legislation with state and local legislation in the works. Here you can find every bill that matters with a succinct write up. If it’s coming up for a vote, in the news, or controversial – it will be on Countable. This includes: Senate and House Bills, Senate and House simple resolutions, Conference Resolutions, and Joint resolutions.

The Countable editorial team creates objective summaries for each piece of legislation sourcing pertinent resources and providing a pro and con argument. Sources include the Congressional Budget Office, Congressional Research Service, the majority and minority committees handling the legislation, the Executive Branch, and notable news and research about the legislation. We encourage feedback – please go to http://www.countable.us to provide feedback.

About Countable
