Description

A legislative tracking system allows for detailed searching and up-to-the-minute tracking of daily legislative activity.

The tracking system of MASC, for instance, follows bills that directly and indirectly impact the cities and towns of South Carolina in the US. Bills are categorized by bill number, sponsor, monitoring level, subject and keyword, date introduced, and date action was taken by a subcommittee, committee or the full House or Senate.

Availability

Only available for the regulatory initiatives affecting specific stakeholder groups.

Blueprint

In line with the expectations of the social contract and democracy, legislative tracking services should become available for everyone.
