Re: [govtrack] Re: Are you using GovTrack data?
- Kevin,Thanks and keep it up! I do some training on "how a bill becomes a law" and this certainly will make my presentations a little less dull! Plus, it is a great way to show people how the THOMAS data is being reused in creative ways.Peggywww.garvinconsulting.com

I am using:
- the bill status data (/data/us/*/ bills/*.xml)
- the roll vote data (/data/us/*/ rolls/*.xml)
- the people database (/data/us/110/ repstats/ people.xml)
- the popularity listing (/data/us/bills. technorati. xml)
- the search service (www.govtrack. us/congress/ billsearch_ api.xpd)
Thanks, Josh, for providing the data.
