“Providing free and open access to the U.S. Code in XML is another win for open government,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said in a joint statement. “Whether it’s our ‘read the bill’ reforms, streaming debates and committee hearings live online, or providing unprecedented access to legislative data, we’re keeping our pledge to make Congress more transparent and accountable to the people we serve.” 

The lawmakers worked with the Office of Law Revision Counsel to make the laws available.
