Great app. Very useful. The Caucus info is missing. Congressional Black Caucus, Hispanic Caucus, Blue Dog Caucus, and Women`s Caucus. Please Add!!
I regret spending 99c on this completely worthless app. All the info it presents is available on the web. It doesn`t provide any additional service worthy of installing it on my phone.
