I am beginning a very slow process of overhauling this site. I am doing this in my spare time so it will probably take forever. The site used to be static, but now it will have automated, fairly recent, colour coded information about what our federal legislators are up to. If you'd like to help me with this project, message me via the Facebook Page. The 'latest news' from this site is now being posted to Twitter and Facebook.
