Track Federal Bills With RSS/XML

I am greatly afeared that this may be old news to some (though I did search to try to make sure that it has not been mentioned here), but it was news to me. And very cool news indeed. The federal parlimentary website has added XML/RSS tracking for the status of Bills. Want to know when a bill is out of committee, or has been sent to the Senate for a sober second thought? Just go to LEGISInfo, choose your favourite bill (or your least favourite bill). Then click on the XM tag and let your browser or RSS reader keep on top of it for you.

XML, is there anything you can’t do?


  1. Thanks. Indeed old news for me. The bigger question in my mind is when are other jurisdictions in Canada going to get around to revamping their websites so that we can track their legislation?
