WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) today announced the launch of his newly redesigned official website.  The new website is far more user friendly and navigable, enabling constituents and other users to easily access information about the Senator’s legislative priorities, how to register their views on important issues, constituent services, information about Maryland, tips on visiting Washington, D.C., and other helpful information.  In addition, the new site has seamlessly integrated social media and multimedia, making easier for visitors to interact with the Senator.
