‘Many Bills’ Service To Aid In Representative Accountability
IMB's new service helps citizens keep their elected representatives honest and accountable.
IBM has released a new free legislative visualizer, Many Bills, that will help citizens track the bills that interest them. The visualizer analyzes each bills passage and helps users keep track of their representativeâ€™s action on it. Users can track their submissions and connections with others in Washington. This means they can proactively contact their Representatives about their actions as a legislator. The format of Many Bills is not entirely intuitive, and users may need to go through the tutorial before using it. However, Many Bills is a great tool for researchers as well as those who want a more transparent and honest government.
