9.4. How do I send e-mail to Congress?

The U.S. House and the Senate are conducting experimental electronic communications projects. One of these experiments is providing electronic mail to members of Congress. As of this writing, 23 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been assigned public electronic mailboxes that may be accessed by their constituents. A number of House committees have also been assigned public electronic mailboxes.

For a current list of the representatives online, send e-mail to (any subject line and message body will do).

According to the document I received when I sent mail to the preceding address, "The results of the six month public mail pilot have been very encouraging. The nature and character of the incoming electronic mail has demonstrated that this capability will be an invaluable source of information on constituent opinion. We are now in the process of expanding the project to other Members of Congress, as technical, budgetary, and staffing constraints allow."
