Thomas.gov Setting, Congress.gov Rising
Congress.gov is the new official source for federal legislative information. It replaces the nearly 20-year-old THOMAS.gov site with a system that includes platform mobility, comprehensive information retrieval and user-friendly presentation. It currently includes all data sets available on THOMAS.gov except nominations, treaties and communications. These data sets will be added throughout 2014. Until that time they are still accessible through THOMAS.gov via the link below. THOMAS.gov will be permanently retired by the end of 2014.

Congress.gov was launched as a beta site and remains a beta site until the transition is complete at the end of 2014 and THOMAS.gov is completely retired. If you type Congress.gov into your browser it redirects to beta.congress.gov. Beta.congress.gov will redirect to Congress.gov at the end of 2014 when the transition is complete, so links to that home page url will not be impacted.
If you are unfamiliar with the new system or want to learn more, Congress.gov online trainings are available:
