LegiScan API

The service provides nonpartisan monitoring for information about pending legislation. It tracks the progress of every bill introduced in the U.S. Congress and all 50 state legislatures through a single, uniform interface. It provides full-text search for legislative initiatives nationwide. API methods support search by jurisdiction, either the U.S. Congress or a state legislative body. Requests can specify text to match, the names of sponsoring legislators, jurisdiction, etc. Returned data provide summary text, sponsors, versions from initial submission to final text, cross-references to previously considered versions, and public commentary on the bill. Methods also support subscription to updates as data about a bill change.
