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.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
