Not an urgent issue, but want to know if my data is doing something crazy or if OpenStates data actually changed. Maybe I’m assuming something incorrect about the nature of the OpenStates ID values.
I recorded some OpenStates bill IDs previously for California, and now have a process pulling and examining the details. I noticed that a lot of them are returning 404, for example:
Looking into it, I noticed that I recorded a bill (CA SB 1332) as CAB00028166 previously, but now it appears to be identified in the OS API v1 as CAB00026431. Did the IDs for bills change, were there duplicates that got cleared out, or something similar?
Thanks for any insight you can offer!
