U.S. House of Representatives Launches Transparency Portal

Posted on January 18, 2012 by


From Dan Schuman at the Sunlight Foundation:

Making good on part of the House of Representative’s commitment to increase congressional transparency, today the House Clerk’s office launched http://docs.house.gov/, a one stop website where the public can access all House bills, amendments, resolutions for floor consideration, and conference reports in XML, as well as information on floor proceedings and more. Information will ultimately be published online in real time and archived for perpetuity.

Free Government Information points out that PDFs of documents are available in addition to XML. They also note that the site has an RSS feed.
