    Conclusion:

    This is actually a pretty informative app and it actually allows you to have a lot of information concerning all of the bills that have been passed recently. It is a great way to stay up to date on the happenings of the country. There are a few problems with the app, however, including the fact that you can’t always get timely updates and also you can’t search for laws or bills that are older and have already been passed.

    This app has been given a pretty decent rating by Android app users and is steady at around 4.2 out of 5 stars. The other nice part about this app (as is the case with most Android apps) is that it is completely free to download onto your phone.
