Update Enables Constituents to Personalize Website
BOSTON – Senate President Therese Murray (D-Plymouth) and House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo (D-Winthrop) announced today updates to the public website that will allow users to personalize their experience when navigating bills, committees, hearing information and connecting with legislators.
“We are always working to make the Legislature’s public website more user-friendly to ensure that our constituents can access the information they need on bills they are interested in or that affect their communities,” Senate President Murray said. “The new features included in this update will enhance the user experience on the website and allow users to more easily track bills, hearings and the activity of their Senators and Representatives.”
“The Legislature’s public website is an extremely valuable tool in serving our constituents and making information easily available,”said House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo (D-Winthrop). “These new features make the site more user-friendly and interactive. By allowing visitors to personalize their experience we hope to engage more citizens and provide improved access to legislative updates.”
Through “MyLegislature,” users can create a user-id and password to access their secure MyLegislature account. Users can identify specific bills, hearings, committees and legislators that they are interested in following and their personalized homepage will display each selection. Any hearings scheduled for their selected committees will automatically be included in their MyLegislature hearing list. In addition, users can further personalize MyLegislature by identifying any accessibility needs.
The updated website also includes an easy-to-use format to connect with legislators. The public website can be found at
