We created our bill list widget, map widget, stakeholder page, scorecard, and API hoping they would prove a useful way for people to share important legislation with their members or with the public. We have been delighted with the creative, effective, and even beautiful uses our customers have devised for using our tools. Some examples to help inspire you:
