This data category requires all national laws and statutes available to be available online, although it is not a requirement that information on legislative behaviour e.g. voting records is available. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:
- Content of the law / status
- If applicable, all relevant amendments to the law
- Date of last amendments
- Data should be updated at least on quarterly
These data do exist , there are laws that are published by the Center of Official Publications, but still there are laws and acts that are missing. Also previous studies made from non-profit organisation has shown that very often there is a delay in making public the court decisions and amendments, this does not help the updating process.
Another problematic issue is the comparative explanation from law to law, that makes very difficult for the public to easily understand the meaning of legal consequences.
The submitter says it's unsure whether the data is timely or not.
