Scout—Federal and State Legislative Alert Service
https://scout.sunlightfoundation.com

Scout is a legislative and regulatory alerts service from the Sunlight Foundation, which provides updates on federal and state legislation, federal regulations, court opinions, and GAO reports. Using the Congressional Record as its source, Capitol Words, a Sunlight Foundation project, analyzes word usage in Congress. GPO provides bill text, and GovTrack, Congress.gov, and OpenCongress provide other bill information. Information from GPO is delayed by about one day. Regulatory information is provided from the Federal Register and published throughout the day. Scout’s data covers 2009 to the present. Open States, a Sunlight Foundation project, publishes data on state legislative activity for all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. This data originates from the official websites of the 50 state legislatures, and it is published at various times throughout the day, depending on the state.

The FR contains the official announcement of regulations and legal notices issued by federal departments and agencies. It includes proposed and final federal regulations having general applicability and legal effect; executive orders and presidential proclamations; documents required to be published by an act of Congress; and other federal documents of public interest. Daily and monthly indexes and an accompanying publication, “List of CFR Sections Affected,” aid in its use. The FR also publishes the “Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions” twice yearly (usually in April and October). This document provides advance notice of proposed rulemaking by listing all rules and proposed rules that more than 60 federal departments, agencies, and commissions expect to issue during the next six months. Regulations that concern the military or foreign affairs, or that deal only with agency personnel, organization, or management matters, are excluded. The agenda is available online from 1994 through the present. This will be added to New Economy Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.
