    location - Chamber of Deputies website Original submission also listed: as a source. This is the Senate website and it looks like it contains draft legislation by the senate, not laws. As a reviewer I removed it as a source.


    I removed the Senate website as a source. The review was based on the "Legislative Repertoire" link from the Chamber of Deputies website. The only other change I made was to indicate that HTML was an available format. The data is actually only available in HTML.

    Reviewer comments

    The submission should be accepted because all the required characteristics are clearly present in the data set.
