New House Vote display system

Was doing some research on bill HB1779 and I found this link on the Bill summary page. This is the first time I have seen this new vote summary which shows all committee and floor votes for a bill. The only thing missing is a recorded vote in committees, that would be nice but all things considered this is major progress.

Here is the format:
