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.
The main source for Draft Legislation is the Stortinget website. It provides all necessary required data to qualify as open data. It is the primary source for the content of legislation, transcripts, votes, authors, and status. The Strotinget website is coupled with an official database site that allows for data querying in various formats as well as table and graph building. This source does not include content of legislation, but does provide ability to query (including downloading XML data) on status, authors, voting and the like. Thus, the data is considered to be downloadable at once.
