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.
|In an open and machine-readable format|
|Publicly available||No||Content of bills and status of bills can be found at: http://www.diputados.bo/index.php/leyes/leyes-en-tratamiento. But data about author of bill is not always available. (As a reviewer I was actually not able to find the author on any bills, so I changed the original submission to indicate that this information was not available. All bills are actually written in the name of the Speaker of the House in which it originated- they do not show name of author). The Original Submission correctly indicated that information of votes on bills and transcript of debates were not available. The status of each bill is not made explicit. But the heading of the webpage states that these are bills not yet in force. The progress of the bills through the legislative progress can be traced by looking at the dated stamps on the first page of each bill which indicate receipt of the bill by each respective house.|
