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.
From the Finlex website that is easily searchable, one of the three main tabs on the main page is "Recent Legislation and Bills," under which data for the latest draft bills are clearly identified. The title, status and author, alongside other pertinent information such as the dates it has been discussed, and by whom, are all available to view in HTML. The content of the bill is available to view and download in PDF.
