Members of Congress, Since 1973
Members of the U.S. Congress features Member profiles for Representatives and Senators who have served since 1973 (93rd Congress). Members from the 71st to 92nd Congresses (1929 to 1972) who were still serving as of the 93rd Congress are included. Profiles can be filtered by congress, chamber, political party, and state or U.S. territory.
Member profiles provide interactive lists of sponsored and cosponsored legislation. You can narrow a member’s list of legislation by selecting filters, also known as facets, on the left side of the page. Member profile filters include sponsorship (sponsored or cosponsored), congress, bill type, Subject – Policy Area, chamber, and committee (to which the legislation was referred).
Member profiles also include service dates, states, district numbers for Representatives, party affiliation, a picture (when available), a link to the member’s entry in the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress, 1774-Present, and a link to remarks made in the Congressional Record.
The BioGuide Id, which originates in the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress, 1774-Present, is a unique control number associated with each present or former member of Congress. You can use the field qualifier memberBioguideId: and a member’s BioGuide Id to search for a particular member profile. For example, select Members from the search drop-down menu and enter memberBioguideId:”C001080″ in the search box to find Representative Judy Chu’s member profile.
