LII legislative metadata project
The materials here document a metadata model for Federal legislation. It is nearly complete, but has some limitations described in the narrative documentation (in particular, it does not include much concerning appropriations, reconciliation, or the finer points of procedural rules). It is highly extensible, and Linked-Data friendly, so that its limitations could easily be addressed by those with the domain expertise to do so. Our hope is that it will serve as a common reference model that can be extended.
For visual documentation, the XMind version is recommended, as it can show all the relevant properties, values, and so on in a dynamic way. The Lily Ledbetter illustration is a worked example that is not intended to show everything we know about that particular Act, but to give an illustrative sample for demonstration purposes.
