On Monday, the Legislative Branch Bulk Data Task Force held a public presentation to share progress on a number of ongoing open government initiatives, including the recent release of House Bill Summaries in XML format for bulk download. The meeting offered the opportunity for open government advocates and developers to ask questions and showcase how data is being used to bring greater transparency to the legislative process.
The video from the meeting may be watched below, and a full list and infographic of open government accomplishments achieved under Speaker Boehner is available at speaker.gov/open.
Also today, the Library of Congress announced the winners of two legislative data challenges conducted using the Challenge.gov platform. The challenges, conducted at the request of the U.S. House of Representatives, will advance the exchange of legislative information worldwide. Learn more here.
