Google Searches the Government

Just in time to help celebrate our nation's independence, Google has unveiled a new type of searching freedom.

Google U.S. Government Search is a portal and search engine for a variety of government resources, from official White House and military releases, to third-party news stories (including non-U.S. sources) and blog postings. Users can even get a weather forecast for Washington DC (current conditions: sunny and 77°F).

Google U.S. Government Search is ideal for anyone needing to research government news and information, as ite appers to search a wider variety of content than other government-related portals.
