One of the biggest complaints I hear from those who are politically apathetic is that they don't know what's going on. The Office of the Republican Whip offers a daily email notice called the Whipping Post which includes links and descriptions of bills scheduled to be before the House that particular day. You can follow the link here:
When I worked in Porter Goss' office, this tool was invaluable as to the days schedule and to gauge where the House was going in its legislative program.
There are several options for viewing the Whipping Post. You can read it as it is posted on the website, you can download and view it as a PDF file, or you can subscribe to the mailing list to receive it in your inbox. I highly recommend this resource so that we can keep our elected officials feet to the fire on bills that are vital to the preservation of American ideals and liberties.
