The LegiScan API is the nation's first data service providing structured XML or JSON real-time information for legislation in all 50 states and Congress in a RESTful web interface. Giving access to bill detail information, status, sponsors, full bill texts, roll call records and more to both public and private entities.
Utilizing the LegiScan API allows other organizations, civic groups or private citizens easy access to the multitude of data produced by over 150,000 pieces of legislation introduced each year. This data can then be used to power product offerings, offer in-depth analysis, drive engagement & outreach programs or in other ways that only you can imagine.
Available in either a free Pull model in which you initiate queries into the national legislative database, or a subscription Push model designed to send infromation to an endpoint service as changes happen.
