Thune Announces Launch of New Senate Website

New Look, Same Commitment to Serving South Dakotans

January 20, 2016


U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) today announced his Senate office has launched a new website that will make it easier for South Dakotans who need assistance navigating the federal government and its agencies to access important information and contact his office. The new site, which has a responsive design and is more user- and mobile-friendly, can be located at its previous domain name:

“As chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, I understand how quickly the Internet is changing and how important it is to embrace that change,” said Thune. “I’m excited to launch this updated website that will simplify the process for constituents to contact my office and see what I’ve been working on in the Senate. We work hard to ensure that our physical Senate offices are welcoming, easy to locate, and provide the information our constituents want and need. The same should be done for our Senate website, and I’m glad we’ve achieved that goal.”

Thune’s website gives constituents an opportunity to email the senator, request help with a federal agency, request tours of the U.S. Capitol, White House, and certain other federal buildings in Washington, D.C., and request flags that have been flown atop the U.S. Capitol. Users who view the website can also read about legislation that Thune has proposed, view his Senate voting record, and connect with him on multiple social media platforms.
