Dome Watch: A Beacon of Transparency and Innovation in the U.S. House of Representatives
About the U.S. House of Representatives. Written on March, 2021
The U.S. House of Representatives has long been regarded as an institution that values transparency and innovation. One recent example of this commitment is the development of the Dome Watch app, a project led by Stephen Dwyer, a staffer for the House Majority Leader. Dome Watch is an app designed to make the lives of U.S. House members and staff easier by providing them with up-to-date information on the legislative process. In addition, the app has significantly increased transparency for the public, press, and academics interested in the workings of the House. As the app has evolved through several iterations, its impact on both legislative efficiency and public transparency has grown.
