More Bill Status Bulk Data Is Available via govinfo

The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) joined forces with the Library of Congress (LC), the U.S. Senate, and the U.S. House of Representatives to release 10 additional years of bill status XML bulk data from 2003 to 2012 on govinfo’s bulk data repository. (Data from 2013 to 2020 is already available.) Bill status information is created by the LC and Congress and tracks the activities and status steps for each legislative measure.

“One of the Library’s most important jobs is to provide the legislative branch and members of the public with an easy-to-use, authoritative source for up-to-date legislative information, which we know today as,” says Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “To meet that responsibility, the Library, GPO, the House, and the Senate share more than data—we share a deep dedication to making official government information as accessible to all Americans as possible. We’re so grateful to GPO for this additional decade of historic legislative information Americans can now explore for themselves.”

For more information, read the press release.
