Bulk access to THOMAS and Legislation

From a blog post at Sunlight Foundation:

Yesterday, Rep. Bill Foster introduced a bill that would improve public access to legislative information. Specifically, H.R. 6289 calls for:

* Bulk access to THOMAS legislative summary and status data,
* The creation of an advisory committee that would issue recommendations on improving services provided by THOMAS, and
* The Library of Congress to work towards adding bulk access to the full text of legislation.
