Alberta legislation status

I  gave the fantastic Field Library Assistants the task of watching Alberta legislation for this fall session.  Our team keeps a spreadsheet of what bills people are interested in for Alberta, Federal and other jurisdictions as well.  In the past, for Alberta, I checked the Daily Bill Activity Report

As soon as I assigned this task to others it became more difficult to carry out. The guilt is horrible.

There is still a relatively straight forward method for monitoring the status of an Alberta bill - at a glance.  Visit the Bill Status Report for the current session and perform a 'find on this page' using your web browser tools for the numbered day.  With Internet Explorer 9, the search terms are highlighted so that you can see which bills have been changed.

This is not as convenient as having the bill activity report updated as the session progresses, but for a daily watch, it works OK.
