Draft Legislation 45% open

Trinidad and Tobago


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?

I have modified the submission (by Alesha Aris, reviewed by Brenna Slawich) to represent the openness of the data. Bills are listed, with status, title and date introduced. When you click on the title, the proponent of the bill is show, along with any debate transcripts and a link to the content both available in PDF. As such, the data is not available in bulk.
