Use the links below to do a quick search for legislation in the 115th Congress using the Library of Congress legislative tracking system "Thomas."  Thomas is a user friendly and flexible web site which allows access to a wide variety of information about legislation including the full text, the status, the sponsors and co-sponsors and links to votes. 

You may also use Thomas to find any recorded votes which may have been held on any particular piece of legislation.  (To find votes by other criteria please use the Clerk of the House.)  Thomas offers many other capabilities, including access to the Congressional Record.  The Congressional Record is the official and permanent record of the proceedings of the Congress of the United States.
