Draft Legislation 65% open

What data is expected?

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.

  • Content of bill
  • Author of bill
  • Votes on bill per member of parliament

characteristics Author of bill, Transcripts of debates on bill, Status of bill A\ Content of bills is never published as data, only as html and pdf files on the official websites. B\ Authors of bills are missing from Senate's data but sufficiently enough present at least for all discussed bills in National Assembly's data. Although National Assembly's data requires author names to be collected through ids in another dataset. C\ Only the the National Assembly publishes data on voting records [but not for all votes]. The Senate does not publish any voting record as data. Votes on bills per member are partially published as OpenData for the National Assembly when a public scrutiny happened (which is the case for most important bills but not all), and associating a vote to a bill is very complex. Votes at the Senate are only published in html pages on the official website. D\ Transcripts are published as separate datasets that are not trivial to bind with bills data. E\ Final status of bills can easily be found in Senate's data. Ongoing status is available in National Assembly's data although it needs to be interpreted from analysing information on all parliamentary steps.

Data is released with the national French Open License, but with an explicit warning that it remains subject to the 2002-1064 decree http://www.legifrance.gouv.fr/affichTexte.do?cidTexte=JORFTEXT000000413818 which authorizes the data owner to refuse to grant the license to a reuser, hence making it not really openly licensed.

All data is present in the sites provided. However, I have to reject it because the site does not have the content of the draft legislation. I cannot find the contents of draft legislation anywhere in the sites, as HTML or PDF like the submitter suggested. Comments below are from original submitter. http://data.assemblee-nationale.fr/travaux-parlementaires/dossiers-legislatifs - Home page for data.
