Bill Field - Subjects


#1

When I ask for the bill “subject” to be included with the bills, the field list is empty. Any suggestions?


#2

Only about 40% of bills have subjects; it varies greatly from state to state.


#3

These are only pulled if the state provides them, and i don’t believe they’re normalized across jurisdictions in any way.


#4

Looking at the Texas subjects, I see long compound phrases. So when my app (a Bot) allows the user query by a subject like “tax”, I have to review all the bills (that meet my other query criteria) and do my own search within the subjects. Is there a more efficient way to search for text within the bill subjects using GraphQL? If now, could this feature be added?
