Draft Legislation 45% open


What data is expected?

Data about the bills discussed within national parliament as well as votings on bills (not to mix with passed national law). Data on bills must be available for the current legislation period. Open data on the law-making process is crucial for parliamentary transparency: What does a bill text say and how does it change over time? Who introduces a bill? Who votes for and against it? Where is a bill discussed next, so the public can participate in debates? This data category draws on work by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the Declaration of Parliamentary Openness.

  • Content of bill
  • Author of bill
  • Votes on bill per member of parliament
  • Transcripts of debates on bill
  • Status of bill

How open is the data?

As a reviewer I changed the source to a more appropriate URL, and used it for the rest of my review. I was able to reach this source through the URL reported by the original submitter. I changed B3 to indicate that Votes and Transcripts are missing. I also changed B4 to NO since bulk download does not seem to be an option. I changed B7 to No after using the Camera de Representates website as a point of reference. I also changed B8 to indicate that data is only available in PDF and Doc. The submission will be accepted because the required characteristics are present.

This submission should be accepted because all the required characteristics are present in the data set.
