update on bulk access to legislative information

Rep. Crenshaw backs down, loses control over bulk data issue, by Josh Tauberer, GovTrack.us (June 7, 2012).

The government data that makes GovTrack go has been the center of what looks like a failed political power play over the last week. Rep. Crenshaw, whose appropriations subcommittee issued a draft report last week that nearly halted access to “bulk data downloads,” now “agree[s] to free legislative information” according to a statement written jointly with House leaders yesterday.
