I want to make a website that displays information about the United States Congress and make it easy to understand. As far as I know the US congress has everything recorded and under the public domain including votes, etc. Is there some way to access that automatically without making FOIA requests? I basically am imagining a system where you have a UI of the full seats of congress and you can hover/highlight on live streams of representatives, save information you are interested in, query information, etc. I just am not sure where to get the data at.
Go through these resources maybe you'll get the data of your interest at any of these--
- GovTrack.us Open Data & API
- Resources A to Z - Congress.gov Resources
- Open Data
- Data and Statistics about the United States
Hope it helps. But in case you need more data and info update me on that. I'll try my best to bring you more data. Cheers!
