Foxx launches new Congressional web site
New web site features streamlined navigation, videos, RSS

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Representative Virginia Foxx (NC-05) today announced the launch of a completely redesigned Congressional web site at www.foxx.house.gov. The new site incorporates web video, the latest congressional news, information about constituent services and background on legislation and votes in Congress.

“The Internet is one of the best tools available for communicating with my constituents,” Foxx said. “My new web site uses a variety of technologies to keep constituents informed about the issues before Congress, including videos, e-mail and online legislative search tools.”

Web-design experts at the non-partisan Congressional Management Foundation recently named Rep. Foxx’s web site one of the best in Congress. The redesigned site builds on the success of the previous web site and introduces new user-friendly features such as RSS feeds and comprehensive sections dedicated to groups like seniors or students.

“I hope my new web site serves as a one-stop-shop for constituents who need information about the federal government, or who want to know what is happening in Congress or who simply want to get in touch with me about the important issues facing North Carolinians,” Foxx said.

The new web site also includes tools to assist constituents in applying for federal grants, resolving issues with federal government agencies or securing a nomination to one of the five Service Academies. In addition, the site outlines the application process for students who wish to serve as Congressional interns or pages.

Congresswoman Foxx today also reminded constituents to check out her Congressional YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/RepVirginiaFoxx. Her channel is updated weekly with her latest floor speeches, committee hearings and web videos on recent issues and legislation.
