Patsy T. Mink Congressional Activity
Originally compiled and published in slightly different form by the Congresswoman Patsy T. Mink Commission, a Hawaii state commission whose members included a Library of Congress representative. At the end of its term in December 2009, the Commission authorized the transfer of some of its Web site content from the Hawaii Department of Accounting and General Services to the Library of Congress and other entities.
Information on Congresswoman Patsy Mink’s activities in the United States Congress may be discovered by searching the various files and databases on THOMAS, a legislative information resource launched in January 1995, at the inception of the 104th Congress. The leadership of the 104th Congress directed the Library of Congress to make federal legislative information freely available to the public. http://thomas.loc.gov/
