Introducing the API

In Custodia Legis – September 6, 2022 by Margaret Wood and Andrew Weber. “ is a fantastic source of legislative information, and a marvelous source for investigating specific legislation and exploring the legislative history of a bill. also contains large amounts of data and various users have expressed interest in having additional access to download this data. Certain entities or persons have “scraped” the website over the years and the Government Publishing Office (GPO) has also offered bulk data downloads for some collections, but these have all been somewhat imperfect measures. However, today we are introducing the beta API which will provide access to accurate and structured congressional data. We are very excited about this release and a great deal of hard work has gone on behind the scenes this year to make this happen.”
