Title: Congress Online: Assessing and Improving Capitol Hill Web Sites
by Congress Online Project (Funded by a grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts)
"Most Web Sites On Hill Unimpressive - Survey"
From the article, "A recent survey of congressional Web sites has identified "a
digital divide" within Congress, in which a small minority of offices boast
sophisticated sites while the majority offer unimpressive ones. The Congress
Online Project, a venture funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts, evaluated the Web
sites of all 605 House and Senate personal offices, committees and leadership
offices. Just 10 percent received grades of A or B, while 90 percent got grades of
C or below."
