eLobbyist 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.
