Open Government Site Govtrack Goes Open Source


GovTrack.US logotitle=” logo” id=”image40″ alt=” logo” src=”” />Josh Tauberer, one of the champs of opening U.S. Government data announced today he has made all of available as open source.

This week I made officially totally open source.
GovTrack is a website that tracks U.S. federal legislation and also
builds the only comprehensive open database of congressional
information. While the data behind GovTrack has been provided in the
public domain for a number of years now, and has been successfully
powering a bunch of other sites like OpenCongress, I’ve been playing
catch-up in getting the source code of the website opened up.
