Fig Leaf Software worked closely with the Senate Committee staff during the creative process which began with a creative session and included the delivery of working prototype. Once the new design was finalized Fig Leaf implemented the new design in the CMS and created functionality for tagging content by issue and content type. Issues include:
- American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
- Appropriations and Budget
- Federal Recognition of Tribes
- Health Care Re-authorization and Reform
- Indian Economic Development
- Indian Education
- Indian Energy
- Indian Water Rights
- Tribal Law and Order

Multimedia webcasts are linked throughout the site and Press can easily find news releases and press contacts and can sort items in the news room by month and year.
The new, easy-to-navigate site provides background information on the Committee, its Rules and Jurisdiction, as well as information about the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Committee Members. All pages in the site are printer and email friendly and there is a rich RSS feed capability for users to subscribe to information based on topic or issue.
Fig Leaf Software integrated site-wide search using the Google Search Appliance thereby allowing users to quickly and easily find relevant information from throughout the site by search term.
