MapLight API

MapLight looks at the connection between campaign donations and legislative votes in an effort to reveal money's influence on politics.

MapLight performs research on supporting and opposing interests for legislative bills. MapLight's Bill Positions API provides a tool for discovering the connection between campaign donations and legislative votes. It can also be mashed up with other databases that contain information about bills or politically-active organizations. This RESTful API returns results in JSON or XML.
