      In addition to the sources she mentions, Thomas provides RSS feeds of each chamber's floor schedule:

      Great question. Vote schedules are not announced (officially) more than a week in advance and they are always subject to change. Looking forward to hearing any other replies. My document-based knowledge:





      Changes announced day before: Daily Digest section of Congressional Record
      Changes announced day of: C-Span, other news sources
      Also see the House Floor Now & Senate Floor Now links in the top right corner of THOMAS.gov.

      Leadership can change the schedule if they want; for instance, if they realize they do not yet have enough votes to pass.

      It would be helpful to me to be able to know when a bill in congress is going to be voted on before the actual vote.

      Is that schedule in the data somewhere. I've looked but can't find any reference.
