Library of Congress Announces Legislative Data Challenge

To help advance the development of international exchange standards for legislative data, the Library of Congress is sponsoring data challenges incorporating the Akoma Ntoso open standard. The first challenge, Markup of US Legislation in Akoma Ntoso, opened today and invites competitors to create representations of four specific US bills using the most recent Akoma Ntoso XML schema.

 Rather than trying to convert existing US bill XML to the proposed Akoma Ntoso standard, this challenge asks competitors to markup the raw text versions of US bills using the structure, elements, and attributes of the Akoma Ntoso schema and produce an entirely new XML version of the bill.

 To learn more about the challenge, please visit, the Law Library of Congress blog, In Custodia Legis, or read the official press release.
