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 representative’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.
