      Would anyone have any idea where I found this data? Who provided it? The file is people.xml. I searched the net and found it once, but can't find it again. It might've just been on xml.house.gov/ but if it's on there, I can't seem to navigate to find it again.

      Only the Senators have committee assignments displayed. Would love to find a source for committee assignments for the rest of them, and of course, would love to be able to talk to the provider of this data, if I only knew who it was. I share the first few nodes below, and then one for a Senator later on in the file.
