Scout—Federal and State Legislative Alert Service
Scout is a legislative and regulatory alerts service from the Sunlight Foundation, which provides updates on federal and state legislation, federal regulations, court opinions, and GAO reports. Using the Congressional Record as its source, Capitol Words, a Sunlight Foundation project, analyzes word usage in Congress. GPO provides bill text, and GovTrack, Congress.gov, and OpenCongress provide other bill information. Information from GPO is delayed by about one day. Regulatory information is provided from the Federal Register and published throughout the day. Scout’s data covers 2009 to the present. Open States, a Sunlight Foundation project, publishes data on state legislative activity for all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. This data originates from the official websites of the 50 state legislatures, and it is published at various times throughout the day, depending on the state.
