I have modified the original submission (by Alesha Aris, reviewed by Brenna Slawich) to represent the availability and openness of the data--the data is not available in an open format, nor is it available for bulk download. Laws are available here, from 1838 to 2014. Amendments are included alongside laws, and are linked depending on which view (not linked when browsing alphabetically/chronologically). The content is available for download in PDF format.
