Coined the "search engine for democracy," BillTrack50 launched "to help individuals and organizations become informed about what their government is doing, and connect them with each other and with their representatives." While the platform offers fee-based plans tailored to certain professional organizations, individuals can create a free account to access basic research features. With this account, users can easily search for bills and legislators, accessing information such as the latest actions on bills of interest and their representatives' voting records. Tracking over two million bills, the site is full of helpful information. However, simple search filters allow users to narrow by bill number, keyword, state, or name, tailoring results to their location or interest. In addition to this search engine, the site has a Blog page that expands on key legislation. Recent topics include the "Pink Tax & Period Equity Legislation" and "COVID-19 Legislation." The site was founded in 2011 by Karen Suhaka.
