WASHINGTON – The Committee on House Administration, in collaboration with the Library of Congress (LOC) and the Government Printing Office (GPO), is pleased to announce a new iPad application that provides users with mobile access to the Congressional Record.

Committee on House Administration Chairman Dan Lungren, R-Calif., issued the following statement on today’s announcement:

“The Congressional Record - the official record of our nation’s legislative endeavors - is vital to legislators doing their job and to the public holding them accountable. That is why I commend the Library of Congress and the Government Printing Office for their dedication to creating this app and improving access to legislative data.

 “As we’ve seen in the 112th Congress through our new electronic posting standards, and now this new Congressional Record app, this House is committed to transparency, accountability and accessibility.”
