Bulk Downloads of Congressional Data Now Available

ProPublica has made available bulk data on congressional bills: "Download information on every bill introduced in each session of Congress, in a single file, with our new bulk bill data set."

This works for the current Congress: "Twice a day, we generate a single zip file containing metadata for every bill introduced in the current congress, including who sponsors and cosponsors the bill, actions taken by committees, votes on the floor and a summary of what the bill would do."

But bill data for past congresses (to 1973) are also available.
