PRODIGY SERVICE MEMBERS CAN WRITE TO HILLARY ONLINE -- ALSO BILL, AL, 'MACK,' CABINET MEMBERS AND CONGRESS

 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- President Clinton is only one of the thousands of government officials to whom members of the Prodigy service -- a home computer network -- can now write online. Others include Vice President Albert Gore, White House Chief of Staff Thomas "Mack" McLarty, and the Office of the First Lady, as well as cabinet members and members of Congress. To get to the new feature online, Prodigy service members can (Jump) Write Washington or Bill Clinton.
 The expanded "Write to Washington" feature includes a ZIP Code search that gives members the names as well as local and Washington addresses of their Senators and members of Congress. Prodigy service members can choose to have their letters delivered to the congressional district or D.C. office for the House or the state or D.C. office for the Senate. All local addresses include the names of the district and state liaisons, in addition to the members of Congress.
 Letters to Washington are transmitted electronically to a Capital- area office, printed and sent by United States Postal Service to the individual addressed. The charge for this service is $2.50 per letter. Later this year, a direct electronic link is planned.
 Other political features on the service include the latest political news, polls, texts of speeches and statements and bios of the administration's principal appointments, as well as regular columns by Washington insiders Robert Novak, Jack Germond and Karen Feld. In 1992, the Prodigy service's political coverage was awarded first place, consumer online information, by the Information Industry Association.
 Prodigy's Closeup Bulletin Board, another source of political information, has also been expanded. Because of the growing volume of political notes on the board, new topics have been added, including the White House, Congress, courts and states.
 The Prodigy service has more than two million members.
