Carroll Publishing Adds Congressional District Maps

Jun 17, 2003

Carroll Publishing has announced the addition of Congressional district maps, an added feature now available to subscribers of its online services GovSearch and FedSearch.  Updated daily, GovSearch and FedSearch provide desktop access, via the World Wide Web, to federal, state, and local government contact databases, organizational charts, and other reference features. Currently, subscribers can search for a member of the House of Representatives to view the official's name, committee positions, staff, biography, and local offices. Now, a map of the Congressional district is also available for reference. Once a user clicks on the district map function, a separate window opens. An enlarged illustration depicts the district's boundaries, key cities, size, and shape. A smaller illustration shows the entire state and the relative position of all other districts within the state. The district number and counties are listed for quick reference. GovSearch and FedSearch also provide access to pending and approved federal confirmations. Details include the department office, position, individual's name and a short professional history prior to the nomination. Subscribers to GovSearch and FedSearch can access Federal Domestic Assistance program information. Coverage such as type of assistance, applicant eligibility, application procedures and deadlines are available.  Programs are also hyperlinked to the Federal office in charge of the program.  With GovSearch and FedSearch, the user can click on the corresponding office and gain direct access to contact information for decision-makers.
