Senate Joins House In Publishing Legislative Information In Modern Formats, by Daniel Schuman. Congressional Data Coalition (December 18, 2014).
There’s big news from today’s Legislative Branch Bulk Data Task Force meeting. The United States Senate announced it would begin publishing text and summary information for Senate legislation, going back to the 113th Congress, in bulk XML. It would join the House of Representatives, which already does this. Both chambers also expect to have bill status information available online in XML format as well, but a little later on in the year.
There is more good news, too. Read Daniel’s complete report at the link above.
