Deprecating all ".xpd" APIs
- All GovTrack APIs that have ".xpd" in the URL are now deprecated. These are:
* The bill search API at http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billsearch_api.xpd
* The Member of Congress API at
* Vote Database API at
These APIs are tied to the current implementation of the GovTrack
front-end which is going to be completely replaced probably around two
or three months from now.
The APIs will continue to work till then. There will be new APIs on the
new site which should cover the same functionality, but there may not be
much time, if any, when the two APIs will be simultaneously available.
This doesn't affect any of the source data XML files or the
congressional district look-up API.
