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.
