Draft Legislation 45% open

Czech Republic

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?

Content is available in PDF and DOC formats. Every draft has its own page with multiple documents. For each version, relevant documents can be downloaded at once. But some of the bulk downloads are blocked for no apparent reason. No option to download all docs for all versions of a draft. There is a simple RSS, but i understand it only a means to follow and publish updates, not bulk downloading the data. The upload period differs, but for most of the latest data, documents are uploaded the same day as changes has been made.

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
