A new Python GovTrack.us Client is now available under the Shades of Nothingness label. This client accesses the GovTrack.us web API to fetch information about bill status in the current US Congress. The author hopes that this will inspire the users to learn more about upcoming bills---perhaps even write their Congressman?

The GovTrack PyClient is built upon the PyKDE4 and PyQt4 libraries (and thereby itself written in Python). It's currently in a quite unrefined state, and development will continue as the author finds time to do so. If you have any suggestions or bug reports, contact the author at christopher.nelson@cavein.org -- he's willing to help.
