House launches transparency portal

The Sunlight Foundation reports:

Making good on part of the House of Representative's commitment to increase congressional transparency, today the House Clerk's office launched http://docs.house.gov/, a one stop website where the public can access all House bills, amendments, resolutions for floor consideration, and conference reports in XML, as well as information on floor proceedings and more. Information will ultimately be published online in real time and archived for perpetuity.

The site doesn't have a whole lot of content at the moment, but as the year goes on, I'm sure that'll change.
