Today the Congress Blog is launching a new feature: video posts. Now lawmakers can appear on camera to deliver their ideas and opinions directly to you.

Like anything else that’s new, this is an experiment. Whether we’re asking questions or simply taking statements, our goal is to expand the site as a communications tool for members, interests groups and organizations.

Today Sen. Craig Thomas (R-Wyo.) discussed the Endangered Species Act with us from his office. We’d like to thank Sen. Thomas for being the first member to participate in our new endeavor. We are excited to take the Congress Blog to this new level, and we look forward to continuing to bring you lawmakers’ views in this new format.
