Visit the "More" section and search for the bills you want to track and see how much the each member raised for his or her most recent campaign.

The applications include bookmarks you assign, a link to the official legislature bill information system, a special tab for new members of the legislature, a link to the governor's official website, a link to the Money In State Politics Pennsylvania page, a mobile-friendly news link to Philly.com, our Twitter feed and blog, polls on issues, user feedback, FAQ, and the ability to email us updates on members of the legislature.
