About Yeas & Nays
I wanted to create a website that helps non-political people know the most important bills working their way through congress. You are busy, working and living life with your children. However, it really is important that you get involved when your voice is most needed. Yeas and Nays will only have bills that are going to be close (and a call to your legislature could sway the vote), firearm legislation, or totally ridiculous bills that you should know about. You will not find all bills here and you might not find bills here that are on topics you're interested in - there are tons of websites that do these things. I hope this site will be helpful for you. I would also love for you to check out my blog, an election calendar, and important elections happening across the country.
