ON PUBLIC ACCESS TO LEGISLATIVE INFORMATION: RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE BULK DATA TASK FORCE

The following is a report on improving public access to legislative information. It (PDF, DOC, ODT) is the result of a collaborative effort that was prompted by the House Leadership's recent statement endorsing bulk access and the questions raised in a committee report accompanying the House Legislative Branch Appropriations Bill.

The co-authors of the report are Daniel Schuman (Sunlight Foundation), Tom Bruce (Cornell University's Legal Information Institute), Josh Tauberer (GovTrack.us), Eric Mill (Sunlight Foundation), and John Wonderlich (Sunlight Foundation).

The report is the latest in the ongoing, multi-year effort to improve how Congress releases legislative information to the public. It provides a roadmap to implementing bulk access to legislative information.
