LegiStorm updates members of Congress and adds financial disclosures
We have added all the new freshmen senators and representatives, and have updated the status of those leaving the legislative bodies. We've also added the financial disclosures for the new members filed as candidates, giving their constituents an early look at the new legislators' financial dealings.
We don't yet have biographical information or photos of most of the new members. We'll update those as soon as the official bios and pics are released. We'll also continue updating our lists of members as open seats are filled.
Although embattled Illinois Gov. Rob Blagojevich (D) appointed Roland Burris (D) to fill the Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama, we have not yet added Burris to our list as Senate leaders have vowed to block him from being seated. In another race, Democrat Al Franken was declared the winner for Minnesota's open Senate seat today, but we are waiting to add him to our rolls until all challenges have finished and he is ready to be sworn in.
