Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: A searchable list, by topic, of active legislation in the U.S. Congress.

Why you’d want it: To learn more about what’s going on in Washington, D.C. The searchable list makes it easy to look for certain topics such as assault weapons and a balanced budget.

Where you get it: Go to beta.congress.gov. Click on the “Active Legislation” link at the top of the home page.

How much does it cost: The information is free.
